IDEAS – Intestinal Disease Education and Awareness Society June 17-26, 2017
Sea to Sky Expeditions is proud to be working in conjunction with IBD Adventures and IDEAS in order to raise awareness of the issues people living with intestinal disease face every day of their lives. Sea to Sky is happy to be donating a percentage of each spot sold towards this worthy cause.
Participants on this tour will be asked to try and raise support for the IDEAS as individuals as well. Your efforts will be going almost exclusively towards a number of tangible projects (only 3% of revenue at IDEAS goes towards administration). Specifically, funds raised will put towards a scholarship set up for nurses looking to specialize in this field and towards funding for a new research lab in Kelowna, BC. You will receive tax receipts for the total of all funds raised. Donations will be made directly with the IDEAS website.
Robert Hill is the inspiration behind the No Guts Know Glory 7 Summits campaign. Diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 23, having had ostomy surgery several years later to remove his diseased colon, Rob made a commitment to raise awareness of intestinal disease by traveling to far places and climbing to extreme heights.

Phil, from Richmond, BC, met Rob in 1993 when they both worked at Motorola. After following Rob’s Seven Summits campaign with great interest, Phil joined the No Guts Know Glory Mount Everest bid as a trekker. With his love for outdoor adventure, Phil took his support of IBD Adventures to the summit of Kilimanjaro in September 2009, to Mount Everest Base Camp in 2010, and now as part of the Yukon River 2016 IBD Adventures.
