Over seven days, committed hikers intend to hike approximately 160km of the Bruce Trail from Mono Mills going North towards Collingwood to remember and connect with the earth and to raise funds for Indigenous communities and environmental initiatives.
There are three ways you can get involved:
1)Sponsor us! https://gofund.me/3e56b5bf
2) Cheer on the hikers by following us on instagram @aangen @shiragracetaylor #CanadaCamino21 #CanadaCamino and give us your support.
3) Join our MOVIE NIGHT – Join the Camino hikers after the hike to learn more about where the funds raised are going. We will be showing the documentary “Raven People Rising” which tells the story of the Heiltsuk people’s campaign for justice after a massive tanker diesel spill in their territory. Their story is one of inspiration and uplift at a time when we sorely need that.

Each day has an approximately 20-25km hike through beautiful scenic Southern Ontario and offers all participants a chance to get active and explore the inner and outer terrain we live in.
In addition to our fundraising efforts, this hike is an opportunity to go beyond our day-to-day lives and open to something much bigger. With each step, we connect to mother earth who nourishes and sustains us, and we remember all the land ancestors who have taken care of her for millenia. We feel our interdependence with all life, we feel just this moment, and we are grateful. Challenges like this and like COVID-19 (a pilgrimage of it’s own!) are truly opportunities to open, to become humble, and to assimilate new understandings and ways of being in the world… It is a walk to heal the earth and our own hearts.
