Daniel Cloutier is a 21 year old from Winnipeg that has a dream: Don’t Stop Believing The dream is to raise as much money as possible to beat Cancer, and to do this, he is rollerblading across Canada. Daniel is due to pass through Medicine Hat on the evening of Sunday, May 16th.

In tow are Daniel’s girlfriend, Chantal Courcelles and his friend, Eric Foidart who accompanying him on the way and accepting donations wherever possible. To donate, check out Daniel’s website

Here is what Daniel has to say:

My name is Daniel Cloutier, I’m 21 years old, a 3rd year Business Student living in Winnipeg, Manitoba with a big goal in mind. I am rollerblading across Canada to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. I was inspired to rollerblade across Canada after seeing hockey player, Sheldon Kennedy do it. I’ve chosen this specific cause after losing my Uncle to cancer in 2007 and my Grandmother recently battled kidney cancer. This journey will help raise a lot of money to beat this horrifying disease.

I started this rollerblading adventure May 1st, 2010 from Vancouver, British Columbia and planning on ending it in July in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am accompanied by my girlfriend, Chantal Courcelles and my good friend, Eric Foidart during this trek. They will be following me with a truck and trailer and collecting the donations for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Our vision for this trek across Canada is to bring everyone together with a common mission of conquering this terrible disease that sadly affects millions of people every day. When everyone gets together, the possibilities are endless! The cures will be achieved!

Gratefully with your help, we will be that much closer to making a difference and curing this disease.

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you so much for your time and attention.
