Wostawea Fundraising Campaign: Trails for Life - Des Sentiers Pour La Vie

Hello Wostaweans!

We are excited to launch our fundraising campaign "Wostawea Trails For Life - Des Sentiers Pour La Vie” and we hope we can count on your support.  

Our Mission:  To enhance the cross country skiing experience in the Fredericton region for all abilities and all ages. 

Our Goal: $150,000

Our Priorities:  

  • Trail Building: Killarney Lake, UNB Woodlot / Kingswood
  • Trail Grooming: state-of-the-art groomer for Killarney Lake, grooming equipment for UNB Woodlot / Kingswood
  • Infrastructure: skis for daily loan at no cost, storage facility

This campaign builds on the momentum of our growing membership, our programs, and our partnerships - all of which have been on the upswing in recent years. Reaching our goal will allow us take a big step forward and build on what we have been able to do with our partners in the Woodlot / Kingswood and at Killarney Lake.

Raised to Date: $70,000!

We are already more than 45% of the way to our goal!  A big chunk of this comes from 5 Killarney Lake Contractors who have together pledged $50,000 -- WOW!!  We thank these five businesses for believing in active living and contributing to the community:

                       Charmac Construction Company Ltd

Envirem Organics Inc

Hogan Paving Ltd

MIRA Construction Ltd

Monteith Underground Services

Another $20,000 comes from several members who have already made their pledges. THANK YOU!

And more good news – the City of Fredericton, in partnership with Wostawea, has agreed to purchase a new state-of-the art Snowcat groomer for Killarney Park Trails for next winter! This would not have happened without our contribution.
