The Trust provides nearly $500,000 for 80 new projects.
More reasons to get active are coming to the Basin this spring with Columbia Basin Trust providing $500,000 for 80 projects to keep youth moving.
The Trust is supporting sport organizations, schools and active recreation programs to create safe, inclusive and quality programs for youth to build the motivation, physical competence and confidence to participate in sport and active living for life.
“We heard how important it was to parents, educators and communities to get children and youth moving to improve their physical and mental well-being,” said Michelle d’Entremont, Manager, Delivery of Benefits, Columbia Basin Trust. “We’re thrilled that so many groups, schools and individuals have committed to increasing and improving opportunities for young people, which will have so many benefits—including fun—for countless young participants.”
Following are examples of projects being supported. See backgrounder for all project details.
