My personal message:

Help me support the Bruce Trail!

This October I’ll be participating in the annual Bruce Trail Hike-a-thon for the third consecutive year. Not only will I be spending time on this fantastic footpath, I will be joining other Hike-a-thoners in raising funds to ensure the future of the Bruce Trail and support the conservation efforts of the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

Over the past two years I have raised $1 445 and hiked 211 km during the month of October to support the Bruce Trail Conservancy's mission of 'preserving a ribbon of wilderness, for everyone, forever." 

This year I am setting an ambitious goal to hike at least 125 km and raise at least $1 000. As always I'll be providing weekly updates of my progress to my sponsors, as well as some photos from the trail as a thank you for your generous donations. This year I will once again be sweeping one of the days of the Caledon Hills End-to-End, enjoying local after-work hikes in the Caledon/Toronto/Iroquoia sections, as well as working towards completing as much of the Peninsula section as I can before the snow. 

I’m asking you to support me in raising much needed funds for the Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) because…

  • 40% of the Bruce Trail corridor is still vulnerable to development,
  • The Bruce Trail Conservancy preserves and actively stewards land along the Niagara Escarpment - a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that is home to hundreds of Ontario's Species at Risk, vital watersheds, and 450 million year old geological history,
  • You believe in preserving access to greenspace for generations to come.

Just click the orange "Sponsor Me" button to make a donation.

Thanks for your support and Happy Trails!

[edit]

The Bruce Trail is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath. Running along the Niagara Escarpment in southern Ontario from Niagara to Tobermory, the Bruce Trail spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of associated side trails.


The Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) is a charitable organization committed to caring for the Bruce Trail and securing a permanent route for the Bruce Trail within a protected natural corridor by raising funds to preserve Niagara Escarpment land.


The BTC is one of Ontario's largest land trusts, responsible for the preservation of over 12,000 acres of irreplaceable Niagara Escarpment landscape.
