Defibrose 3514 km


My name is Olivier Blake and I'm a huge fan of hiking in the mountains.

You may have already been following my adventures.

In fact, in 2017, I traveled alone 4240 km between the Mexican border and Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, one of the longest trails in the world between April and September.

Today, I decided to take on a new personal challenge: the Appalachian Trail. This 3,514 kilometer trail connects Springer MountainGeorgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine.

Once again, I am going to associate this challenge with the cause of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. A cause that is important to me, since my friends Benoit Laliberté and Martine Comeau have 2 daughters that have CF. I am the father of a beautiful 17 years old girl who is in good health and I am very grateful for that. This is me combining my passion for adventure and helping a worthy cause.

I hope you can support me in this new endeavor and help me to reach my financial goal of $ 7,028, which is $ 2 per km that I will travel.

On behalf of myself, Alexie and Charlie and all people living with cystic fibrosis, we say THANK YOU!
