Save One Life/ Wheels for the World

Barry Haarde-This year Barry will be doing his Wheels for the World ride in June starting in Northern Alberta and riding to Juneau, Alaska.  

Bio:
I am 51 and have severe hemophilia A and am a 35 year survivor of HIV and have liver cirrhosis from hepatitis C. I also ride on a 17 year old total knee replacement on which I have ridden a bike over 100,000 miles. I lost both a brother and brother-in-law, both hemophiliacs, to the twin pandemics of AIDS and hepatitis C. I've completed five transcontinental bike trips (two of which entered Ontario) including last year's 5,000 mile ride in 60 days from Seattle, WA to Key West, FL. Including this year's effort, we have now raised nearly a quarter million dollars for Save One Life. Past and present sponsors include Baxalta, Bayer, Biogen, Apteveo, and a number of specialty pharmacies and other organizations.

Two camps offered:

    Camp SunMaker
    offers children a chance to get outdoors and meet new friends. At camp, they find much-needed camaraderie along with healthy doses of outdoor fun, including hiking, rafting, wall climbing, swimming, archery, the high ropes and the giant swing
    .

  • Camp SunSeeker (for 14 - 17 year olds)
    SunSeeker is an outdoor leadership program that focuses on personal development. By experiencing the outdoors, youth learn a new set of skills and sense of adventure. The program focuses on developing both 'hard' skills such as packing for a hike or knot tying and 'soft' skills, such as communication with peers and patience.

    SunSeeker promotes physical fitness, mental well-being, environmental awareness, and personal growth in a supportive, exciting outdoor environment. Youth are supported by the SunSeeker coordinators and highly skilled volunteers.

    Onsite activities include meal preparation, fire building, shelter building, hiking, biking, environmental stewardship etc. Out-trip activities can include hiking, mountain biking, caving, rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, etc.
