Peter and Nolan's 1000 Mile Canoe Adventure  to Cure Diabetes

The canoe trip is an estimated 70 days, covering over 1000 miles of rivers. The trip is organized as an official charity fundraiser to benefit the American Diabetes Association. This blog will be following Peter and Nolan on their entire trip, including pictures, progress, and amazing stories.

The Challenge and Goal 
  • Launch date: June 23rd, 2014
  • No GPS, no hotels, no motors
  •  Navigation will be by map and compass only.
  • All distance covered will be by canoe, or portaging by foot. 
  • All nights spent camping 
  • Complete the approximate 1000 mile route, consecutively. (estimated 70 days) 
  • Raise at least $10,000 for the American Diabetes Association
The Cause 
     Pete and Nolan's fathers are both type I diabetics, and they have seen the challenges their fathers face in order to maintain life on a daily basis. Type 1 diabetes is a genetic, lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Peter and Nolan's fathers have had to live their entire lives manually adjusting their sugar levels by taking insulin by syringe or pump. If left untreated for even one day, they could go into a seizure or diabetic coma resulting in death within hours. 
      Seeing the challenge of their father lives on a daily basis, just to stay alive, Peter and Nolan have created their own challenge; to raise money for the cure.
