Walking back to Saskatoon

Dave Nordin (BSc’84) is embarking on a unique journey from Calgary to Saskatoon, one step at a time.

Nordin is walking from his home in Calgary all the way to Saskatoon, approximately a 600km trek, in an effort to raise funds for two important causes. Nordin lost both his parents to heart disease, so the walk will raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The walk is also raising funds for the University of Saskatchewan’s Ore Gangue Bursary Fund. Nordin has been connected with the Ore Gangue Students’ Society for more than 35 years and hopes to raise the profile of the bursary fund.
