“Skookum” Couple Race to Support Mining Matters

For the second year in a row, Glenn Nolan and Maureen Hatherley will be racing along the Yukon in support of Mining Matters education and outreach programs. Nolan and Hatherley are described as “skookum” people—strong, impressive, excellent, good, powerful—all meanings for “skookum”. And they invite you along for the ride…at least in spirit!

Nolan and Hatherley will tackle the The Yukon River Quest, a marathon canoe and kayak race that challenges paddlers from around the world to test their endurance, racing 715 km miles, day and night, from Whitehorse to Dawson City. 

Passionate about mineral education, they ask members of the mineral industry to sponsor their race by donating to Mining Matters, supporting Earth science programs designed to teach Canadian students, teachers, and the public about the importance of Canada’s mineral resources. “Raising funds to support Mining Matters is a small way Maureen and I can give back to an industry that has done so much for so many," says Glenn.

The couple’s participation in the annual race is set to run June 27 to July 1, 2018. We wish Glenn and Maureen all good fortune in their amazing adventure. Please show your support by donating today.
