A Proper Send-Off is a 30 minute companion piece to MARCH TO THE TOP, a compelling and emotional documentary / campfire performance show highlighting the challenges faced by 12 wounded and ill Canadian veterans as they struggle to the 20,305 ft. high summit of Island Peak, a mountain near Everest in the Himalayas.
A Proper Send-Off is a salute, a send off and a musical tribute to the brave men and women about to embark on this incredible journey. The show will feature the final training days of the troops. We will meet these heroes and talk to them about their hopes, goals and apprehensions before they set out for Nepal. In a final 'graduation' sendoff from training, Canadian country legend Paul Brandt will perform for the troops in an intimate and rustic setting beneath the Rocky Mountains of Canmore, Alberta.
