Congratulations to Radé Svorcan (aka mountainman333) and to the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative. Radé’s December 11th review of the Leki Makalu Antishock trekking poles was randomly selected as the winner of our first 1% For the Planet donation contest, which we held at the end of 2007.
Radé selected the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative (Y2Y) as the recipient of a $250 donation from Trailspace in his honor. Through science and stewardship, Y2Y seeks to ensure that the wilderness, wildlife, native plants, and natural processes of the Yellowstone to Yukon region continue to function as an interconnected web of life.
Radé is an engineer and lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. When he finds some free time he likes to spend it in the mountains, doing anything from mountaineering to photography. So far he has fit in trekking trips to Patagonia and Peru, and climbs up Mt. Whitney, Rainier, and peaks in the Rockies and Andes. Unfortunately Radé has been working off-site and couldn't send us a photo to share from his many adventures.
Congratulations, Radé! And thanks for helping Trailspace support a worthy cause.
