Visit the Villages Tractor Trek 2018

Visit the Villages Tractor Trek is in its 11th year as a signature fund-raising event for Eden Foundation.  The ride this year is scheduled for Saturday July 14th, 2018.  If you’re ready to register, you can come visit us at our office at 309 Main Street in Winkler, you can give us a call at 204-325-5355 and we’ll register you while you’re on the phone, or you can register on line HERE.  If you’re supporting a Tractor Trekker, you can click on that same link and you’ll be able to sponsor a specific driver.

Visit the Villages Tractor Trek is a fund-raiser to support mental health recovery programs for individuals living in our Southern Health region.  By registering for this event and raising funds, you’re making a profound difference in the lives of many individuals living with a mental health challenge.

This year, the plan is for us to start and end in Reinland, just south of Winkler by a few miles.  Our intention is to drive a section of the ‘Old Post Road’ as far as Halbstadt which is east of Gretna.  There we’ll have quick stop and then make our way back to Reinland.  It’s longer trek than we’ve done in previous years and that’s as a result of listening to trekkers who told us they’d prefer driving over doing a skills competition like the ‘Tractor Olympics’.  So let’s drive!

Details about the day and the route, along with some recommendations can be found in the Trekker’s Manual.  You can either view or download that manual HERE.

 HERE’S WHAT YOUR FUND-RAISING WILL HELP US DO…

  • the renovation of six suites at Enns Courts in Winkler
  • new evaluation software and training for Segue Career Options serving both Winkler and Steinbach
  • mental health promotions project in Morden, Winkler and Steinbach
