Columbia Basin Trust Support Helps Expand Indoor Fitness Programs in Field

Field Recreation Advisory Association (FRAA) extends heartfelt thanks to the Columbia Basin Trust for support provided to the community of Field, BC to establish an expanded indoor fitness and event option through the Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program.

In concert with volunteer organisers, Parks Canada and Journey to Fitness, the FRAA will offer circuit training, High Intensity Interval Training, a ping pong league and community concert events in the gymnasium of Field Elementary School once these indoor activities are again deemed safe by the Provincial Health Officer. In the meantime, the FRAA has used the grant money awarded, $9,450.00, to purchase equipment and a secure entry system. This facility will offer additional activities to the community, with a particular focus on expanded indoor options in the winter when residents are interested in getting together for some fun that involves physical challenge in a warm setting.

Columbia Basin Trust has supported many important community initiatives in Field that encourage personal well-being and opportunities for social gathering, and have established some great traditions. Although the pandemic has curbed some activities for now, the FRAA looks forward to picking up where we left off. The current indoor fitness and events initiative will be a welcome addition to the community, and give us a break from all the amazing cross country skiing and skating we enjoy now, programs also supported by Columbia Basin Trust in the past!Thank you Columbia Basin Trust.
