Mission

PADDLE is a new initiative.

PADDLE stands for Paddle Against Diabetes Display Love for Earth.  It is meant to heighten awareness of  Aboriginal Diabetes and Diabetes in general.

PADDLE hopes to establish a network of community PADDLEs much like the Runs and Walks already established.  We hope to reach out to the smaller and more remote Aboriginal communities as well.  Paddling is definitely connected to the Aboriginal culture. Through PADDLE, we hope to promote a standard of healthy and active living.

PADDLE is also reaching out to bring awareness to smaller and more remote Aboriginal Diabetes health units through Jack’s solo canoe trips.  These include Moose Factory Ontario (Moose Cree First Nation), Natuashish Labrador (Mushuau Innu First Nation) and in the future, with Fort Simpson NWT (Dene First Nation – Dehcho Health and Social Services Authority).
