Seventeen Grade 7 Waldorf students loaded into various canoes on the North Shore and launched into their paddle towards their next leg- a hike up to Pulpit Rock.

Paddle, Pulpit, pedal- Waldorf students embark on a triathlon of adventure

Grade 7 students brave stormy weather as they canoe down Kootenay Lake, hike the Pulpit Rock trail and cycle to Lakeside Park.

A deluge of rain may have delayed the start of the Grade 7 Waldorf students triathlon-style challenge this morning, but not their spirit.

Seventeen students are braving the stormy weather today as they canoe down a portion of the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, hike the Pulpit Rock trail and cycle across the Nelson bridge to Lakeside Park for the grand finale and pot luck.

Keep you eyes open for the group during the cycling portion, from the base of Pulpit to Lakeside Park.

The students gathered pledges for this adventurous challenge, raising $3200 for their year-end rock-climbing trip to Skaha Bluffs, near Penticton. Students are also donating 10 per cent of the funds to the Eco-Society.
