Total Goal

Join me today

Since 2016, I (Laval St. Germain) have worked with the Alberta Cancer Foundation to make life better for Albertans facing cancer. I have raised over $60,000 by rowing across the Atlantic Ocean for Confront Cancer Ocean Row and would like to raise an additional $140,000 to complete my fundraising goal of $200,000 by skiing to the South Pole solo and climbing my 7th summit in Antarctica

About my New Adventure

Date of Departure:
November 11, 2018 

Number of Days: 55

Location: Solo unsupported full length ski to the South Pole,
followed by a climb of Mount Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica (and my 7th summit).

Distance: Hercules Inlet to South Pole = 1,130 KM

How Much Gear?: Food for 50 days,  15L of fuel for cooking & more critically to melt snow for water, a tent which can withstand winds of over 130 km/h and a sleeping bag that is down-filled and temperature rated to below -40C…all pulled behind me in a sled weighing over 100kg.

Together, How do we Make an Impact?: Proceeds from the event directly support cancer patients at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary and the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.


Twelve humans have walked on the moon, about the same have succeeded in the Explorers Grand Slam, I need your help to be the next.
