The Iceland Challenge 2017: breathtaking views and a challenging terrain

The Royal LePage team has shared a beautiful video showcasing the vast and every-changing terrain of Iceland. The teams hiked this challenging landscape to raise funds and awareness in support of shelters and community resources within our city. This challenge involved raising 85% of their funds for 2 Saskatoon shelters, the YWCA Crisis Shelter & Residence and Saskatoon Interval House. 15% of the funds are designated for violence prevention programs that expose truth and awareness about violence while teaching alternatives. Each participant involved in the hike has raised $5,000 to be able to participate on this incredible journey.

Check out the video below to see what the participants hiked in for 8 days:
