Did You Hike-a-thon?

The Bruce Trail Hike-a-thon was a month-long fundraising event supporting the Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC).  Participants set a personal hiking goal, sought sponsorship from friends and family, and then hiked the Bruce Trail throughout the month of October.

Hike-a-thoners as a group have raised over $30,000, which will bring us closer to the BTC’s 50th Anniversary goal of 5,000 additional acres of Niagara Escarpment landscape secured, stewarded and made available to the public.  It’s not too late to show your support, as donations will be accepted until November 7th.
