The Portage Atlantic Recovery Trail Project involves extending and enhancing Cassidy Lake’s existing 3.8 km path to include wheelchair accessibility and to provide safe and picturesque routes for walking, running, biking, and snowshoeing. Supporters of the Stride for Success Relay for the Recovery Trail have been outstanding; two of which are recognised as the first “Magnificent Maples” ($15,000+) in the donor category. Forzani Group’s Power of Sports for Kids has recently made very generous donations to the Recovery Trail project by presenting a cheque for $15,000 to Portage Atlantic, along with twelve new mountain bikes and helmets from SportChek.

United Commercial Travellers (Jack Kidd Council 755), a longstanding supporter of Portage Atlantic is also contributing $15,000 for the Recovery Trail. Eight members of the UCT club visited the rehabilitation centre recently to make this announcement.
