Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - New Life Covenant Church in Twig is building a new church this spring. They're holding a fundraiser to help them do it, but not just any fundraiser.

In true Northland fashion, the church's pastor, Brad Shannon, will be trekking 1,500 miles by snowmobile all the way to Canada to raise money.

Shannon is leaving for Churchill, Canada around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, after the church's Sunday morning sermon.
