West Kootenay Map

West Kootenay Adaptive Trek

From July 2nd to July 11th, Executive Director Mike Riediger, along with Tanelle Bolt of Rad Society and Ethan Krueger will be embarking on a journey the will take them from Revelstoke, BC to Nelson, BC, by way of Crank and Paddle. This adventure is part of a documentary short which will explore the idea of “What If”. This theme was chosen not only to help the broader public see past their initial stigma of persons with disabilities, but also offer inspiration to those dreaming of connecting or reconnecting with the outdoors.

When it comes to the outdoors, or life in general, it is hard to take into account how lucky the majority of us are to have access to the world around us. For many of the people we work with at KASA on a day-to-day basis, they too may have had the same thoughts of access as most, but sometimes life has other outcomes in mind. Injured in the pursuit of outdoor adventure, Ethan Krueger and Tanelle Bolt will be joined by Mike Riediger, telling a story of pushing past ones perceived limitations and adapting to a new reality of Outdoor Adventure; its difficulties and the work being done to overcome.

Follow along during their journey on Facebook and Instagram.
