Trips for Kids at Fall Fest

On October, 24 2010, the Annapolis Valley Trips for Kids Chapter participated in Fall Fest at the Links. Fall Fest was a fundraiser for trail construction and maintenance for the trails on Burgess Mountain, just north of Woodville. The event was organized by The Annapolis Valley Mountain Bike Association (AVMBA) and was a huge success with a major turn out logging 130 volunteer hours and raising over $500 for future trail work at the Links. Based on Fall Fests success in October, it looks like it will become an annual event hosted by The AVMBA. Kids enjoyed guided group rides, and a wonderful BBQ. Trips for Kids looks forward to participating again the years to come.
