About us

Four local adventurers are skiing the final degree to the North Pole to raise money for schools and kids' charities in Hamilton and the surrounding area.

Fred Losani - Fred Losani is the CEO of Losani Homes, a home builder with a 30 year tradition of excellence in the Hamilton, Niagara & Southwestern Ontario regions.  Losani Homes takes pride in the quality homes they build, excellent customer service they provide and giving back to the community.  As a generous community contributor with strong family values, Fred is determined to give disadvantaged children in our region the opportunity to nourish their bodies and minds with food, shelter and education.  Although he’ll dearly miss his wife Shelly and 3 children, Lauren, Noah & Alexander, he’ll take comfort in knowing that they think he’s the coolest dad in the world.

Steve Stipsits - Steve Stipsits is a homebuilder and the owner of Branthaven Homes which has been building homes in and around Burlington Ontario for over thirty five years. On the expedition, Steve will be missing his wife Elizabeth, and three young daughters Claire, Sophie, and Vienna. Having young children of his own, Steve can’t accept that some students in his local area have to go to school hungry. Through this initiative Steve is hoping to help change that. The girls, on the other hand, just can’t accept the fact that they are not allowed to join dad’s trip to see Santa Claus.

Peter Turkstra - Peter is the President of Turkstra Lumber.  Turkstra Lumber, a family business that has been in existence for over 53 years, operates twelve lumber yards and three manufacturing plants. The motto at Turkstra Lumber is “Always on the Level”.  Personally, Peter enjoys sports but has never done anything like this – ever.  His two daughters, Sarah and Laura, and his wife, Karen, are wondering if this is a mid-life crisis or if he is just crazy.  Peter is not sure, but hopes that this trip will raise awareness of the need to help children in the inner city schools.

All expenses are being paid by the team members to ensure all funds raised go directly to their respective charities.
