There’s nothing like a summer road trip in Canada and for those who have the time, getting across the country is a goal many would like to accomplish.

There are a handful of living legends in Vancouver and Red Robinson is certainly one of them.

Their line-up of international guests is always impressive and the campaign not only raises millions of dollars for Free the Children, it also raises millions of volunteer hours. The event educates children and youth across Canada about global causes while also inspiring them to do what […]
