We're making a lot of progress with our fund-raising and sponsorship drives and we couldn't be happier! Our GoFundMe account is live with people taking advantage of the FREE Cornwall BMX Club and BMX Canada memberships special.

Bicycle World in Cornwall will be once again be giving us their support, as will Speedy Glass/Krown Undercoating, and Kristina Bougie, Registered Massage Therapist. We'll also be welcoming a new BMX specific sponsor with Twisted Metal Racing, a new Ontario based BMX racing team. We're hoping that more local businesses will decide to help us with this awesome project.

We'd also like to take the time to acknowledge the fantastic members of the Rotary Club of Cornwall for their extremely generous donation of $10,000 last summer. We certainly couldn't have gotten this far without their support.

A private donor will be generously supplying us with a large air compressor for our gate, another has supplied us with a gas powered water pump and storage bins.

We've also learned that the City's budget steering committee has just approved our Community Grant Request for an additional $10,000.

Finally our bottle drive is well underway! You can drop off your empties at Speedy Glass/Krown Undercoating at 3310 Second St. East on Saturday's before noon. They can also be dropped off at the office of Kristina Bougie, RMT, at 236 Augustus St. or you can contact us directly and we'll arrange to pick them up.

You can also get involved with this great project for the kids of our community by sponsoring, donating or volunteering. Contact us for more details.
