A couple of things are bound to happen when you go for a 972 kilometre walk. First of all, you’re probably going to get some blisters. And, second, you’re likely going to get some attention. In the case of Kyle Patterson — who’s currently walking from Vancouver to Calgary to raise awareness and funds to fight mental illness — he can certainly put a check mark beside both of those.
If you would like to learn more about Kyle’s journey and would like to donate to the cause (proceeds go to the Canadian Mental Health Association and the Foundry in Kelowna), please visit http://www.puckoff.org.
