This expedition raised an incredible $2.46 million, supporting the following Canadian organizations and initiatives:
“Our trip to Antarctica brought much joy and growth to my life. The harsh and unforgiving landscape forced us deep into each other’s personal lives…each member accepting their own strengths and limitations, as well as those of their teammates.”
– Glen Villa, Antarctica Expedition Team Member, Civilian Participant
