The Geri-Arctics Ellesmere Island Expedition 2019
WHAT: Presentation on an Adventure in the High Arctic by a group of seniors. This was a self-planned and self-propelled expedition.
WHERE: Burnaby Seniors Outreach Services Society, 2055 Rosser Ave, Burnaby.
WHEN: Tuesday October 22, 2:00-3:00pm
WHO: The Geri-Arctics are seven adventurous friends aged between 64 – 74 years. In the Spring of 2019 they spent a month on Ellesmere Island in Canada’s remote north-eastern Arctic. They met polar bears and muskoxen, saw evidence of transient presence of other creatures, saw stone circles of ancient travellers, and experienced the vastness and silence of the High Arctic.
WHY: We believe in pursuing our dreams into advancing age while making the necessary adaptations to do so. All team members have, or have had, health concerns. One of these is Alzheimer’s Disease. We want to help raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and about the Alzheimer Society of BC.
Entrance by Donation to the Alzheimer Society.
