Founder Bryce Douglas Fequet will travel across Canada from Coast to Coast. The Trek will follow the path of Terry Fox. It will start at St. John's Newfoundland the beginning of July and finish at Mile Zero, at Beacon Hill Park, Victoria , BC, on Terry's birthday, July 28th. Like Terry, Bryce will collect two bottles of water from the Atlantic, as Terry planned, but didn't quite work, as he lost one bottle while filling it and managed to fill the other half, and the Marathon of Hope was begun.
Terry Fox was of Indigenous Ancestry, from Manitoba-North Dakota & Quebec.
The purpose for the Métis Nation of Canada Trek is based on Hope and determination. The Indigenous Community must unite as one to be strong, one System for ALL indigenous People in Canada.
