Dr. Andrew Furey was shaken upon hearing of the devastation caused by the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010, killing over 200,000 people. Haiti was in desperate need for help, so along with his wife Dr. Allison, and orthopedic surgeon Dr. Will Moores, Dr. Andrew travelled to Haiti to do everything possible to help those affected. Out of this mission, Team Broken Earth was born. Dr. Andrew put together a group of Canadian physicians, nurses, and physiotherapists to provide aid in Haiti for the long term. Over the years, Team Broken Earth has expanded across Canada and continues to help those suffering in Haiti, and more recently, in other countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Guatemala, and Nicaragua.
It took five and a half months and 2,300 kilometres, but they did it. Martina Halik and her mother Tania completed a cross-country ski trip from Squamish to Skagway, Alaska, traversing the entire length of the Coast Mountains. It's a feat that has only ever been accomplished once before. Their presentation will detail the five and half month-long ski traverse and will feature their challenges, close-calls, failures and successes throughout the epic adventure.
