    *** FINAL FUNDRAISER *** to get Patrick over the top for his fundraising goal -- this is the last campaign before Patrick heads to the Dakar in January!

    If you've already got too many T-Shirts, here's another way that you can participate and support our Canadian participants.

    Click on either of the images below to donate individual stage kms, or complete stages to help Patrick reach his overall fundraising goal. Sponsor as few as 10kms, or sponsor a complete stage! No amount is too small.

    Your contribution to the effort will be commemorated by a special signed certificate sent to you, indicating your support and our thanks.

    As Kms get sold, we'll update the map to show progress to the end goal!

    T-shirt ordered and subscribed.

    One question - the site says, "Take action to support Patrick Beaulé toward his efforts to become the first Canadian to finish the Dakar as a navigator (2012) and as a Motorcycle driver." Isn't Lawrence Hacking already the first Canadian to finish the Dakar on a Motorcycle?

    I ordered a shirt about a month ago, haven't seen it yet. I had a confirmation email from Paypal that the money went through. Has there been any delays with orders? Thanks

    I ordered mine also Dec 4th.
    I emailed Patrick last week and he mentioned he would be getting it out shortly - but haven't seen it yet.

    Note from Pat:


    "I just got my bike into the Parc fermé which means we fullfilled all the requierements! The whole pressure dropped when I parked my bike and started automatically to cry.... I feel i did so much work just to get there. From now on; the start will begin!"
