On December 14, 1911, 110 years ago, Roald Amundsen and his team became the first people to reach the South Pole. In his autobiography, Amundsen wrote that the entire course of his life was shaped by reading about the Arctic expeditions of Sir John Franklin, an early 19th-century British explorer. He was just a fifteen-year-old boy when he discovered Franklin’s writings and his life’s passion.
With your generous support, Red Canoe Foundation can similarly inspire young people by offering them access to the wilderness they otherwise would not have. Yes, these opportunities allow them to become literal explorers of the natural world but also explorers of themselves, finding their own courage, capabilities, and confidence.
Please consider a donation to the Red Canoe Foundation today to help these would-be explorers.
