Gros Morne
Where Once They Stood, We Stand

Gros Morne
Where Once They Stood, We Stand
True Patriot Love Expedition Series


This September the “Where Once They Stood, We Stand” expedition participants, both civilians
and members of the military community will tackle the rugged back country of the Long Range
Traverse in Gros Morne National Park. This experience is powerful in the healing, recovery, and
transition of our military participants and equally powerful in inspiring the civilian participants.
The military participants will be Newfoundlanders as a tribute to the vast number that
served Canada proudly in the Canadian Armed Forces.

True Patriot Love Foundation’s Expedition.

Unplug and refocus
Stepping away from your phone, laptop and hectic daily schedule will allow you to focus on yourself, your team’s mission, the present moment and the silence of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.

Build your physical strength and endurance
This adventure will motivate you to get in the best shape of your life! We’ll provide you with the necessary skills for training, as well as one-on-one coaching with a professional personal trainer to ensure you’re in optimal physical health as you prepare for this fitness challenge.

Build new relationships
You’ll have the unique opportunity to enrich your life with new personal and professional relationships with other like-minded career executives and the brave individuals who serve, or have served, with the Canadian Armed Forces. Our expeditions offer a safe and supportive environment in which to bond with your teammates, listen and learn from each other.

Be a role model
After facing the physical and mental obstacles during your time in Gros Morne you’ll be a trailblazer, an inspiration across the country for your strength, tenacity and contribution to the well-being of our military members, Veterans and their families.

Experience the rewards of mentorship
The individuals of our military serve, or have served, Canada with great strength and courage while making enormous sacrifices. Some have sustained both visible and invisible injuries. This is your chance to give back to them. As a civilian participant of this expedition, you’ll provide much-needed support to them as they face the challenges of transitioning to a fulfilling civilian life. At the same time, you’ll learn from the valuable experience and skills of our Canadian Armed Forces members and Veterans.

Support an important, Canadian cause
You’ll generate public awareness surrounding the critical issues facing the military community, from Post Traumatic Stress to limited healthcare access for military children with special needs, and will fundraise to address these needs. True Patriot Love Foundation has changed the lives of more than 40,000 military members, Veteran and families in Canada over the past decade. By participating in this expedition, you’ll help us impact even more.
