When I decided to do this trip I had four goals that I wanted to achieve:
Added to the TV interviews there were articles in both of the two local Jasper newspapers. The independent paper, The Local, reported my efforts in three articles; one before I started, another while I was on the river and a final summary once I was back in Jasper. You can read all three of these articles by clicking on the image below and you will be taken to the Local website where digital copies of the newspaper and recent articles are available.
All of this exposure through the media and the fact that two mothers reached out to Gill after becoming aware of her society gives me the feeling that I succeeded in achieving my goal of raising awareness about the issues surrounding the loss of a baby.
That's enough for this post. My next posts will look at my other goals to see if I feel I was successful or not. Stay tuned for my assessment of my fund raising goal.
These sponsors helped to make my canoe trip possible.
