2020 GREAT LAKES EXPEDITION

To Inspire Those Who Struggle Everyday With Chronic Pain or a Chronic Health Condition to
Never Give Up On Their Dreams

Never Give Up On Living Their Life To The Fullest.
 
And In The Process
Fulfill My Dream To Paddle All 5 Of The Great Lakes in Less Than One Year

"I want to inspire individuals who live everyday with chronic pain or a chronic illness to NEVER stop doing the things that they love and NEVER give up on living their life.

Life is too short and too precious to waste it sitting at home - if you live with chronic pain like I do, then your always going to hurt - my goal is to inspire you and challenge you to keep moving and to choose living over existing."

December 16th, 2017 - 3,592 Miles Paddled in 10 Months

Traci Martin made the hard decision to stop paddling in Toronto, Ontario Canada - due to severe winter storms on Lake Ontario and ice forming on the lake. 

The decision has been made - in 2020 Traci is heading back to try again.
