The Eden Mills Cross Country Ski Club has received a $15,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, which will assist with the purchase of new trail grooming and rental ski equipment, benefitting the club’s Jackrabbit program.
“I’m thrilled our government is able to support such a worthwhile program,” Guelph MPP Liz Sandals said.
The program provides children aged 4 to 14 with skills training, while focusing on the benefits of active living.
Sandals said Eden Mills has been using 20-year-old equipment, “hoping it will make it through just one more winter.”
The addition of rental ski equipment will also lower costs for families, she added.
