What a success! Thanks to our friends at the Gorge Cinema and Ian Evans our first community fundraising event was an overwhelming success. We packed the Cinema and were entertained and amazed by Ian’s amazing story of walking to the south pole. It was a fun and engaging afternoon that helped us raise nearly $3,000! Thanks to everyone who came out!

In January 2015, as part of a 4-man international expedition, Ian Evans joined an elite group of adventurers by becoming one of fewer than 400 who have skied from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole. On what has been called “The hardest expedition on earth”, the team took 44 days to cover the 950km to the South Pole at 9,300 feet above sea level.
Join us as Ian recounts his adventure through images and video. After the talk and Q&A, you can check out Ian’s polar gear. This is a great event for all the explorers in your life!
All funds raised will be shared by the members of the Centre Wellington Refugee Network (CWRN.CA) to support our efforts to welcome Syrian families into Centre Wellington.
