- Treetop Trekking Fundraiser
20 Sun Oct 2013
On October 20th, 2013, Treetop Trekking will be donating 50% of sales from visits to its four Ontario zip line and aerial game parks to Right To Play.
Climb For a Cause Fundraiser to Support Right To Play
Right To Play is an organization whose mission is to improve the lives of children in the most disadvantaged areas of the world by using the power of sport and play for development, health and peace.
The public is encouraged to make a reservation by phone to come for a fun and exciting outdoor adventure while exploring one of four parks in Ontario. Locations are in Barrie, Brampton, Huntsville and the Ganaraska Forest between Port Hope and Peterborough. During each 3-hour tour climbers explore the forest canopy on zip lines, wooden bridges, balance logs, Tarzan swings and other innovative aerial games leading from tree to tree.
Each October, Treetop Trekking donates 50% of sales on a particular day to a charity that focuses on bringing happiness to children in need. In 2012, Treetop Trekking raised close for $4000 for Make-A-Wish Canada.
In addition to 50% of sales from 3-hour climbs going to Right To Play, Treetop Trekking will also be offering a special $5 rate on Big Zip rides at its Barrie location with 100% of these proceeds going to Right To Play.
“Putting smiles on peoples faces is a fundamental goal behind what Treetop Trekking does. Being able to support charities like Right To Play that have this same objective allows us to bring happiness to many more children than just those that visit our parks” says Mike Stiell, Marketing Manager for Treetop Trekking.
Founded in 2000, Right To Play is the leading international humanitarian and development organization using the transformative power of sport and play to build essential skills in children and thereby drive social change in communities affected by war, poverty and disease.
Treetop Trekking opened its first Ontario zip line and aerial game park in 2006 in Barrie. It now operates 4 parks in Ontario located at Horseshoe Resort in Barrie, Heart Lake Conservation Area in Brampton, at the Ganaraska Forest between Port Hope and Peterborough, and at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville.
