    Why Your Support Matters

    During the COVID-19 health crisis, the incredible trails surrounding Manuels River have seen an increased use by families for their physical and mental well being. Manuels River, a registered charity, provides this beautiful, clean outdoor space FREE to everyone in the Province and the World, who wants to come and enjoy them. We maintain these busy trails and diligently oversee their operation and preservation. Based on our electronic trail counters, over 300,000 people experienced these trails in 2019.

    Normally, we have been able to operate with revenue generated from 4 major fundraising events each year:

    • Trails To Oceans - June
    • Bobber Race Day - July
    • Chefs For Trails - Sept
    • Giv'er On The River - Oct.

    Unfortunately, this year we probably won't be able to put off these large events due to the new healthcare restrictions currently in place. Even as these restrictions are lightened and eventually lifted, we feel the financial risk may be more than our well-intentioned charity can handle.

    If you feel you're in a position to help, please support our efforts with the purchase of Bobber Race 50/50 Lottery tickets. Your support will allow us to continue Manuels River trail maintenance and conservation for ALL.
