 The Storm the Hill Challenge involves staff paddling non-stop more than 50 kilometers in under 40 hours from Bedford Mills to Parliament Hill in Ottawa

This year's group made the trek in 28 hours and 36 minutes. Amazing!

So far, the group has raised more than $8,000. There’s still time to donate at

The Gould Lake Outdoor Centre provides environmental and experiential education programs for elementary and secondary students. During the school year, classes participate in outdoor programs ranging from pond studies to canoeing and from winter cookouts to team building. In the summer, Gould Lake provides curriculum-based credit programs for students delivered through canoe, hiking and kayak trips.
