Nelson Waldorf school takes on eco-challenge

Class 7 Waldorf students will undertake a fundraising eco-challenge on Thursday.

Class 7 Waldorf students have been practicing for their eco-challenge this week

Embracing the opportunity to live life to the fullest in Nelson’s great outdoors, Class 7 Waldorf students will undertake a fundraising eco-challenge on Thursday. They will paddle canoes 1.5 km along Kootenay Lake from the Big Orange Bridge to Johnstone Regional Park, hike 3.6 km up and down Pulpit Rock, and then bike four km back to Lakeside Park.

The students wish to demonstrate their commitment to leading active physical lives and their co-operative involvement in a fundraising effort. In doing so they hope to inspire other youth, celebrate nature, and raise money to ensure that everyone, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances, was able to take part in a year-end high ropes trip in Grand Forks.

Pledges of support can be made online at iainpardoe.com/nwsclass7paddlehikepedal.htm. Ten percent of funds raised will go to the West Kootenay EcoSociety. For further information contact Iain Pardoe at iainpardoe@gmail.com or 250-505-5088.
