Mari McMillan

Well hello there! I’m so excited you’re here. It means a lot to me that you came for a visit. I’m not sure what brought you here - maybe you’re in the Great Climate Race community, maybe you care deeply about what climate solutions and a friend or colleague referred you. Either way I am thrilled and deeply honoured. Here’s the deal: Ben, Rosie and I are going to be running/walking/jogging - generally moving in a forward direction on our feet. You can sponsor me at any amount per kilometre (you set the total). For example, if I run/walk 90 kilometres and you sponsor me 45 cents per kilometre, that’s a whole $40 bucks (and 50 cents) going to a solar project! Even if you don’t have $40 any dollar amount is hugely appreciated. Because you sponsoring means, a solar project can get built faster and that’s the urgency we try to convey every chance we get - climate change is a race against time and it’s up to all of us to do what we can to help solve it.

Mari's Goal is to run at least 150km during the Great Climate Race

Progress: total distance run so far 64.1663km

Pledging to support Mari at a rate of $0.25/km would raise about 37.5, if the goal is reached!

How it works

While Mari is clocking up the distance on foot, all you need to do is let him know you have his back! For each kilometer he runs, you can sponsor him any amount you like. Of course you can set a cap of the maximum you'd like to donate. You won’t pay until the road trip is over, and you will be notified at the time with the total distance run and the amount of your contribution. Thanks for letting Mari know that with every step he runs you will be supporting him.

All sponsorship is handled in a completely secure way - we neither receive or store any of your card details, that is handled by a trusted third party company and all details are passed to them via encrypted exchange. If you are interested to learn more about their security you can do so here

Mari's cause: Tsleil Waututh Nation - Solar Project

Ben West

The Tsleil-Waututh Nation (pronounced Slay-Wa-Tuth) are the people of Burrad Inlet. They have lived in the area around what we now know as Vancouver for thousands of years. They have become a leading voice in the discussion of energy issues in Canada because they have not given their consent to a new proposed pipeline and oil tankers in their territory because it is a risk too great to accept. The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is building a new administrative building and health centre in North Vancouver which will be completed in the Fall of 2017. The project will include a grid-tied solar PV project that will reduce the energy demands of the new buildings and put approximately 47,000 kwh a year on to the local electricity grid.
