Want to support youth canoeing, while earning a chance tow in a Level6 Emperor drysuit?
Level6 has teamed up with Canada’s Project Canoe by hosting a raffle to raise money and send youth on a canoe trip that may change and impact their lives forever. All proceeds go to Project Canoe.
Project Canoe offers therapeutic and educational outdoor programming to Ontario youth in both wilderness and urban environments. Their focus is on youth who might otherwise miss out on the experience of outdoor adventure as a result of systemic or mental health barriers.
“Project Canoe provides youth with opportunities to build self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-love through the power of educational and therapeutic outdoor programming,” says Level6’s Kevin Cook. “Level Six strives to create a respectful, inclusive, stigma-free and supportive culture within our watersports community and internally as a company. We want all individuals to experience the joy and personal growth that comes with life on the water and our excited to support this project.”
Leveraging the inherently therapeutic power of outdoor spaces, Project Canoe’s programs are designed to support youth in recognizing and building on their own unique strengths, forming meaningful social connections, and raising their perceived limits of what they’re capable of.
The core program offering is their summer wilderness canoe trip program, which is complimented by programs in Toronto throughout the year, which help youth build upon and carry forward the skills they learned and the friendships they made.
The raffle runs until March 31st with winner chosen April 2.
