Event description

Description

"What adventure changed your life?"

Each fall we explore this question with a keynote speaker who has experienced an incredible adventure.

Our 2017 Adventurer is Laval St. Germain.

Laval is the only Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, the only person to have climbed and skied Iraq's highest peak, and the holder of the fastest ever crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean by solo ocean row boat from mainland North America to mainland Europe. Laval has climbed the highest peak on 6 of the earth's 7 continents, and the highest peaks of more than a dozen nations.

Uniquely blending extreme high risk outdoor adventure with the deliberate and strict adherence to procedures, checklists and risk management inherent in an airline pilot has kept Laval alive. Laval is an acclaimed keynote speaker, with emotional and striking stories from up there above the clouds and out there beyond the ocean horizon.

Hear and see what it takes to have the ability to step out way past normal, and shove off way past safe, but come back alive.

In addition to Laval's presentation, we'll be presenting about Two Wheel View Bike Trips and learning more about the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award. Snacks and beverages provided and a prize raffle.

Proceeds from the ticket sales go to support Two Wheel View youth programs.
