The East Coast Trail Association (ECTA) is taking a different approach with its annual Trail Raiser fundraiser this year.

The association has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association – Newfoundland and Labrador Division (CMHA-NL) for East Coast Trail Raiser - On the Go.


The challenge is on! 

Participants can complete a journey, a mission, the length of the East Coast Trail, between now and Nov. 30 - that's  336 kilometres in four months. The mission will include the completion of a physical journey and fundraising for two local charities.

Participants can complete their physical journey on the East Coast Trail, or any portion of it. You can walk, run, or wheel your 336-kilometre journey, anywhere within your community, the province, Canada or beyond. 

Each participant will decide where they will complete their mission and the number of kilometres they will include in their challenge.

The "Trail Raiser - On the Go" mission can be completed as an individual or through team-based activities.

This event is open to everyone: individuals, communities and businesses. Participants will be able to track their distances through an online portal that they will gain access to after registering.

This event is your opportunity to make a positive impact: Get fit, have fun and raise funds while getting out in nature. Join this mission of discovery, wellness and community engagement.
