Though they’ve only been dating for a short time, this adventurous, competitive, and playful couple don’t see their new bond as a potential challenge.
 
Growing up just outside Thunder Bay, Ont., Court was removed from his family at a young age and only reconnected with his Indigenous family much later in life. Finally able to discover his true heritage, Court started a sports academy for Indigenous youth, providing opportunities to play, express themselves, and improve their mental and physical health.

Ali’s childhood in Fernie, B.C. was filled with outdoor activities and caring for animals on their family rescue farm. Although tough at times, she is thankful for growing up in a way that taught her to work hard and live off the land. She is an avid explorer and will jump at any chance to be in the mountains. Together, she and Court design and create custom beaded leather designs, such as hatbands and bracelets, that combine both of their heritages and passions.

Court and Ali are in the race to prove that they truly are soulmates, but they’re not just running it for themselves – they’re also racing for the Indigenous sports academy crew and Ali’s mom.
