Rubberized Track in Morden, 1st in the Pemb Valley

Tax deductible


Discovery Trails School in Morden MB, set to open in Sept 2024, has the opportunity to build the Pembina Valley's first 8 lane rubberized running track with a properly graded soccer field inside of the track.

This new outdoor facility will benefit many people and groups. Public, sports teams, students, special Olympics, travelling competitions, athletes' training, the list goes on...

The new school property has enough land, thanks to a generous donation from the City of Morden, to accommodate this sizeable undertaking.

We need your help to bring a high quality, Olympic size track and field to Morden.
