Dave Koop embarked on an epic journey in the summer of 2023, hoping to paddle solo from Flin Flon, Manitoba, to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories.

While he was planning the trip anyway, he decided to turn it into a fundraiser for Child Evangelism Fellowship after a relative approached him.

He shares his experience of canoeing and portageing thousands of kilometres, just him and his dog, through forest fires, and mental exhaustion.

Check out the full interview to see how far he made it.
