And up the Glacier Ascension at Blackcomb Mountain on February 13th- 16th
we are Flipping a 400 pound 24km in 24 hours around the Stanley park seawall
On February 10th, 2018, Terrance Kosikar, the founder of Camp My Way, and his Team of Warriors will undertake the Herculean task of flipping a 400lb tractor tire – end over end – for 24 kilometres in 24 hours around the Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver, BC.
Eight years ago, on the opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, a tragic accident resulted in the death of a young Georgian luge athlete, Nodar Kumaritashvili. The first person on the scene of the accident was Terrance Kosikar from Whistler, BC, and a part of him died that day, too.
As an Emergency Responder, Kosikar was well-trained in a myriad of life saving techniques, however he was not prepared for the emotional trauma which resulted when he was not able to save the young man’s life. Kosikar developed Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSD) and his life spiraled out of control. He lost his career, his family and — as a result of severe depression, anxiety, and substance abuse —Kosikar almost lost his own life.
Increasing Awareness of PTSD for first responders
Kosikar fought back against this devastating disorder and, after finding solace in the peace and beauty of the backcountry near Lillooet, BC, Kosikar became determined to share the healing power of nature with others. In 2015, he began a residential wilderness program called Camp My Way to help Emergency Service Providers who are struggling with PTSD to get their lives back and reconnect with their family and friends through teamwork, self-discipline, meditation, exercise, nutrition and sharing positive experiences, in a natural environment.
Over the past several years, Kosikar has symbolically demonstrated the struggle of PTSD by flipping a large tractor tire across great distances or up mountains. For the fundraising event on February 10th, Kosikar and his team will literally do the heavy lifting by flipping the 400lb tire around the Stanley Park Seawall for 24 kilometres in 24 hours. They are asking friends, family and supporter of Emergency Service Providers and anyone that may have struggled with mental health and substance abuse issues to sponsor the team’s efforts by pledging a donation for each kilometre.

Together, We can help heal our Emergency service providers. First Responders, Armed Forces Members, and Veterans are more vulnerable to PTSD than traditional citizens resulting in the 10th leading cause of death by suicide.
