On October 29th our community celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Perseverance Trail Run! This incredible event has helped to raise close to 1 million dollars over the past 2 decades and organizers, runners and supporters of this event show no sign of stopping. This trail race is for the whole community to come together to show their support for the Cumberland Community Forest with the “everyone welcome” Party in the Park to follow!

This year we also have some BIG NEWS! A generous forest fairy has stepped forward to match up to $25,000 in additional community donations for the 2023 Perseverance Trail Run! Every dollar raised up to $25,000 will be matched in support of the land protection and stewardship work of the Cumberland Community Forest Society!

We are honoured by the kindness, generosity and energy that the Perseverance Trail Run has brought to the Cumberland Community Forest Society over the past 20 years. Let’s make it 20 more!
