About the event

The 'what' and the 'why'

Come spend a fun-filled day on the water with us in support of an outstanding Saint John charity!

Gather your crew, find a sponsor, and join us for an exciting scavenger hunt on the gorgeous St. John & Kennebeccasis Rivers! There are prizes to be won, laughs to be had, and the festivities will be capped off by a pig roast followed by a dance with live music!

What could possibly make this day better? The knowledge that all money raised will go directly to First Steps Housing Project. Come spend an amazing day with us to benefit an incredible cause!

The Charity / First Steps Housing Saint John

The Charity

First Steps is a residential facility operating in partnership with the Saint John community. It offers a supportive environment to young pregnant and parenting women who have no safe place to live, assisting them in reaching their full potential.  

First Steps first opened their doors in 2002 after Dr. Christine Davies, a family doctor in Saint John, noticed the prevalence of pregnant young women with no place to live safely, coupled with a lack of support facilities for homeless young mothers and their babies. Thanks to financial help from both the provincial and federal governments, and significant support from the community, First Steps was born.

The aim of First Steps is to provide a supportive transitional housing facility for pregnant young women (16-29) and their infants who have no safe place to live. First Steps strives to ensure that these young women will have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby; and through partnering with existing community services, will assist these young women in moving from homelessness to self-sufficiency and a better quality of life.
