After 6 men sat together in the Bow River basin and discussed the GIANT of

an issue of SEX TRAFFICKING,  it was easy to use Mt. EVEREST as a metaphor.

- "Standing at the base of Everest it seems insurmountable,

too big to conquer, but the reality is, it isn't.

The first step is to decide to pack a bag and

move towards it." - Rem (Founder)

Why 8848?  Because, Mt. Everest is 8848m tall.  The idea was born to summit Everest not overseas but, here in the Alberta Rocky Mountains.  These men were inspired to create The Freedom 8848 Team Everest Challenge as a justice initiative of 4th Musketeer Canada following a 72 hour wilderness journey called Extreme Character Challenge -XCC.

-

The Freedom 8848 Team Everest Challenge was created to raise funds, awareness and most of all empathy for those who have quieted voices.  To support and find ways to protect those who are enslaved, on a recovery journey, the frontline organizations, our children, and anyone else who is directly or indirectly involved.

"This mission needs your help!"

-

As one of the Freedom8848 supporters put it: 

-

" I hope... that they don’t only climb the equivalent of Everest:

they move the equivalent of Everest."

-

The funds raised are donated to carefully selected organizations.  


 

Freedom 8848, their partners, and all it's participants sincerely ask for your support as we enter the second of many annual events this August 19-22, 2021.
