On Sunday September the 18th 22 Members of the Caledon Ladies Hiking and Meet Up Group will be hiking the Caledon part of the Trans Canada Trail “The Great Trail” from Inglewood to Palgrave to raise money to purchase another stone bench and since September 18th is also Terry Fox Day all extra funds will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation.
Valerie Pringle, past host of CTV’s Canada AM, journalist and now the Director of the Ontario part of the Trans Canada Trail and Jessica Maga the Director of External Relations for the Trans Canada Trail will also be joining us.
Just as the ladies of the Caledon Ladies Hiking and Meet Up Group, Valerie and Jessica love the outdoors and are very passionate about the Trans Canada Trail and all it has to offer.
They are always excited about helping out to fundraise and spread the word about the TCT “The Great Trail” and the benefits the outdoors offer in keeping people active, healthy and fit.
We are thankful to have their support and having them be part of our fundraiser hike to raise funds to place another stone bench on the trail, plant some trees that everyone can enjoy and help out our community when possible.
As we have been lucky to have amazing trails to use we wanted to give back by doing this fundraiser.
