The Brant Waterways Foundation is pleased to host the 9th Annual Hike, Run, Ride for the River & Trails at Brant Park Conservation Area on Saturday, Sept 9th. 

Bring the whole family out to celebrate our world class trail system and the natural beauty of the Grand River watershed.

We have an activity for everyone!

Funds raised from this event go towards the completion of community based projects which aim to preserve, protect, restore, and improve the Grand River, its related water bodies and adjacent lands in Brantford, the County of Brant and Six Nations.

The Brant Waterways Foundation has helped to fund many projects since its establishment in 1988 including the restoration of the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo (TH&B) rail trail, tree planting with the Brant Tree Coalition’s 'Forest in the City’ project, the lighting of Penman’s Dam in Paris, Ontario and many more.

By coming out and helping to raise both funds and awareness for the foundation, you are helping to support future projects in Brantford, Brant County and Six Nations.

We look forward to hosting you and your family! 

Happy Training,

The BWF HRR Organizing Committee
