A BIG thank you to Parks Foundation Calgary for their generous support!
The support received from Parks Foundation Calgary directly impacted Foothills Nordic’s ability to deliver cross-country ski programming to youth and adults at Confederation Park Golf Course for the next two seasons. Funds will be used to:
- purchase new grooming equipment. This equipment is vital for the trails at the Confederation Park Golf Course, Ski at School, and East Village Nordic Loop.
- purchase additional skis for the Ski at School program, where Foothills Nordic brings skiing to between 700 and 1000 elementary students per year;
- purchase biathlon equipment; and
- provide an ancillary benefit of free access to local clubs, school groups, and the public to cross-country skiing on groomed trails in Calgary (Golf Course winter visits are unprecedented in 2020/2021).
“We are extremely grateful for the support from Parks Foundation Calgary. The Amateur Sport Grant will help procure vital equipment that allows Foothills Nordic to make cross country skiing and biathlon accessible for 1000s of Calgarians. We share the same vision with the Foundation and are excited to help enable winter activities in our city parks.” Gabor Csonka, President, Foothills Nordic Ski Club
