The Test of Humanity

It all started when…

Nic and Shei Seaton began the Test of Humanity in 2010 in Summerland, BC (Canada) to fundraise for Canadian Humanitarian’s education programs in Ethiopia. They had traveled to Ethiopia and seen the need for, and the positive impact of those education programs first hand, and wanted to find a way to support as well as give back to their own community.

They created an amazing event that people loved year after year.

To honor their legacy – the Test of Humanity has now become a virtual challenge, spreading their mission to the world as anyone can participate from anywhere they may be.

The Test of Humanity continues to fulfill their mission to break the cycle of poverty by providing education support and empowerment programs to amazing students who desperately need it in Ethiopia, Malawi, and Guatemala.
