Class 7 students at Waldorf school will challenge themselves triathlon-style on May 30.

Nelson Waldorf students to paddle, hike, and pedal

Funds will go toward an annual rock-climbing trip.

Jumping into spring with gusto, Class 7 Waldorf students will undertake a fundraising triathlon-style challenge on May 30 at 10 a.m. These eco-warriors will paddle west along Kootenay Lake from the Orange Bridge, hike Pulpit Rock, and then pedal from Pulpit across the Orange Bridge to Lakeside Park.

The students wish to demonstrate their commitment to active physical lives, and their co-operative involvement in a financial endeavour. In doing so they will inspire other youth, celebrate nature, and raise their own funds for a year-end rock-climbing trip to Skaha Bluffs.

Come and meet the students at the Nelson Garden Festival on Baker Street on Saturday. The students will have a table where they will also be selling truffles and saplings.

Let’s help our inspired kids spring into action.

Ten per cent of funds raised will go to the West Kootenay EcoSociety. The following businesses have also offered their support: Nelson and District Credit Union, Nelson Ford, Peoples Drug Mart No. 137 in Salmo, Baldface Lodge, Kokanee Camera, Kootenay Co-op, Bowick Electric, Dulux Paints, Gerick Cycle and Ski, Valhalla Path Realty, Save-On-Foods, Kölmel Silver and Gold, Walmart, Outer Clove Restaurant and PRT Harrop.
