Cross-country skiing in Nunavik
For a second year in a row, the two have spearheaded a special project called the Kujjuuaq Cross-Country Ski Club. Last year they raised $60 000 to pay for equipment, plane tickets and for a coach to live in Kuujjuaq from January to April. The goal is to show 15 girls and young women in the community how to wax their skis, groom trails and make it past the finish line.
