The goal of the run was simple. Circle the world’s sixth largest lake and raise as much money as possible for the 28 million people dealing with cancer worldwide.
According to Steve:
"On a personal level, it would be the deepest inner journey I have ever undertaken. It would become a 40-day meditation. A stripping off of all the BS that doesn’t really matter in our lives. I wanted to find the best of me and to do that I’d also have to deal with the worst of me."
Upside Down in the Yukon River
"Upside Down in the Yukon River" is an inspiring true story full of dreams, fear, doubts, success, failure, and hope; in which an ordinary guy from Iowa takes on an extraordinary challenge that quickly turns into a fight for his own life against Mother Nature herself.
Steve Cannon's honest and humble storytelling throughout this engaging adventure challenges each one of us to live every precious moment empty of regret, and reminds us all that our only real failures are those steps never taken in pursuit of our own dreams.
