Help Us Tell Our Story! Apply to be in
TNT has received a very generous donation to create a high-quality, professional documentary film about our treks, and we'll be bringing a small professional film crew on our caregiver/survivor backpacking trek this August in the Wyoming and our survivor-only canoeing trek this September in Utah. If you're interested in being considered, please apply for one of those treks now, as space is limited!
In addition to submitting the typical application form and medical clearance, we're asking for one additional thing before we make final decisions on who will ultimately be accepted to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
After you apply to one of these 2 treks, please send us a 2-3 minute Velfie (video selfie) and upload it here (using your phone or a video camera). Briefly introduce yourself and your cancer journey, as well as why you're interested in going on the documentary-filming trek and what you're hoping to get out of it. Caregivers will also need to upload a video if applying to the Caregiver/Survivor trek. If it's easier to have someone else video record you, that's fine, but please avoid filming in a noisy environment, or with a white or black backgrounds. Most phones offer high resolution MP4 formats, so please try to send us the best quality possible. And please be yourself. This is just a way for us to get to know you a little better beyond the written application.
If you're selected, we will be in touch with additional details. We wanted to give you a heads up that one thing we'll ask is that between 1-2 weeks before your trek, you (and your caregiver if applicable) keep a regular brief video diary/check in on what's going on in your life, especially as it relates to your cancer journey. We'll also ask you to do something similar following your trek.
Thanks for considering being a part of our documentary film so we can share with others some of the amazing things that take place on our treks!
