Chad Kennedy and the Sea to Sea TEAM stepped off in Cranbrook B.C. on April 4th 2022 and ended their 1st leg of the cross Canada Journey on August 30th in Montreal. Chad, Rick, and Lisa will kick off the 2nd leg of the Sea to Sea trek on June 2nd 2023 in Quebec City. Chad's mission is to not only "Define" himself and find his "Purpose", it is also to inspire others to speak of their injuries to keep the PTS conversation going.

Funds raised during our walk across Canada will benefit Mental Health Initiatives revolving around our Public Safety Personnel and Military Communities including our Northern Territories.


Meet the Man - Chad Kennedy

A Canadian Armed Forces Veteran... Still processing this part of my story, it will definitely be a chapter in my book.

I have been involved in Law Enforcement since 2004, most recently with the Alberta Sheriff Highway Patrol, now off work indefinitely while working on my healing.

Up until a few years ago I had a constant battle with anger and anxiety... I reached out for help. I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety in 2018. Recently I suffered a post traumatic stress injury (PTSI) after attending a horrible incident in the Canadian Rockies on July 18, 2020, fortunately I was able to receive the help I so desperately needed for my trauma.

August of the same year I suffered a meltdown... after calming down and reevaluating the situation, it was evident that though our loved ones are at our side, our loved ones don't truly understand the beast that lives within us. Yes it's a physical injury, not a visual injury. "NOT ALL WOUNDS ARE VISIBLE."

The vision. To walk across Canada alongside of some amazing warriors, raising awareness of PTS and mental health, to raise funds to help those who need treatment and to assist in creating education programs for loved ones and friends.

Public Safety Personnel (nurses, doctors, corrections, police, peace officers, firefighters, paramedics, EMT's, & dispatchers), Military, and Veteran Communities. It's time to tell our stories, it's time to be heard.

Your donation or purchase of our merchandise will help fuel our walk and support Mental Health Initiatives across Canada.

Shout Out to Wingman Rick Chorney who has had and will continue to have my "six" every step of the way.

Thank you,

Chad Kennedy
