52km BP Trails Challenge &
319km Hike Da Boot Challenge
LET'S GET MOVING FOR HEALTHCARE.
This spring and summer, let's get moving in support of local healthcare at home.
This year's 52km BP Trails and 319km Hike Da Boot Challenges are calling you to challenge yourself, take on new adventures, and focus on your own physical and mental well-being. We are all unique with varying levels of mobility, and we want to ensure our challenges are accessible to everyone. In the attachment above, you'll find a full list of the 16 trails that make of the 52km 2023 BP Trails Challenge, and as always, you can join our 319km Hike Da Boot Challenge and complete the distance from Goobies, down the boot and around the loop. You'll notice that we've also added Wheelchair Accessible options that are available in our communities throughout the region, and have highlighted accessible trails without stairs that are mostly level with either gravel and/or board walkways. We are breaking down the barriers and welcoming anyone and everyone to join us on this journey to challenge yourself and "get moving", whatever that means for you.
Although we are suggesting these 16 scenic, local trails for our 2023 BP Trails Challenge, either challenge can be completed however you wish, as long as you complete the distances.
Swim, wheel, stroll, hike, bike, walk or run! Complete the distances and complete the challenge!
Last year, your donations purchased a Cuddle Bed for the Palliative Care Unit at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Center. Because of your support, families are able to lay close together and comfort their loved ones during end-of-life when it's needed most. This year, donations raised during our challenges will purchase new equipment for Respiratory Therapy, Physiotherapy, and Outpatient Clinics on the Burin Peninsula, enhancing care for local families and patients.
As always, we encourage you to join our Facebook page, BP Trails Challenge & Hike Da Boot Challenge and share your photos with our virtual community. The love and motivational support for each other in this Facebook group has become an inspiration to many, both locally and across the country.
You can register by clicking either of the links above, or by calling us at (709) 891-3456. Registration is $40, or you can collect sponsorships from your family and friends.
