Canadian Wilderness Adventures fishing boats Whistler Philippines

The Fishing Boats are Finished!

On June 19th Canadian Cares hosted a Prohibition Party/Fundraiser for the RYOT foundation. We managed to raise enough money to purchase 4 fishing boats for fisherman in the Philippines who were affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

The boats are now ready and will be presented to the fisherman soon! Huge thank you to David Darg, from RYOT, who hand delivered our logo and is keeping us updated on our progress.  Thank you to all the volunteers, everyone who attended, and everyone who donated. We couldn’t have done it without you!
