June 1st is InterNational Trails Day! Sentiers Wakefield Trails is celebrating by kicking off its June Fundraising Campaign. Our goal is to raise $10,000 before the end of month. Via social media and our soon to air podcast, the ‘Our Trails, Our Stories’ campaign will be sharing stories we’re busy collecting from people who have a connection to the Wakefield Trails and trails in general. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, facebook, Instagram, on our website and the podcast!
Forest trails are such an important piece of a community’s landscape and this is certainly very true in Wakefield. For the past 8 years, Sentiers Wakefield Trails, a volunteer group of outdoor enthusiasts, has worked tirelessly to create and maintain the 10 km trail system that runs in and around the village and provides easy access to the extensive Gatineau Park Trail system. Part of this trail is also a part of the Trans Canada Trail, also known as The Great Trail.
We receive partial funding from the municipality but we greatly depend on donations from the public. Funds raised go towards:
Every donation gets a charitable tax receipt which will come in handy when you’re filing your taxes. And this year, we also have some great give-aways, provided by some wonderful local businesses – if you donate, you’re entered in the raffle! More info to come!
Happy InterNational Trails Day!!
