From March 2 to May 20, Misericordia Place residents are walking, pedalling and wheeling their way to dream destinations around the globe, in support of MHC. Throughout the Around the World in 80 Days campaign, we'll be sharing participants' stories.
To say that Geraldine Anderson likes polar bears is an understatement. The Misericordia Place resident’s room door is adorned with polar bears, she has a polar bear mug, framed pictures of polar bears, a polar bear blanket – you get the idea!
Naturally, Geraldine’s dream destination would be to journey throughout the Arctic with special attention to Churchill.
“I’d really love to go to the Arctic,” says Geraldine, who also happens to be wearing a polar bear shirt.
Geraldine is getting her steps in daily by delivering the Winnipeg Free Press newspapers to the other residents on her floor, an activity that gives her great satisfaction.
Recreation facilitator Rael Kulchycki will help Geraldine plot her journey North: from Churchill to Nunavut (Rankin Inlet! Baker Lake! Iqaluit! Pangnirtung!) and finally to Nuuk, Greenland.
Rael will also download the new CBC “Arctic Vets” show on the shared iPad for Geraldine’s viewing pleasure!
You can give the gift of adventure!
