On behalf of RBC GranFondo Whistler, the RBC Blue Water Project is donating $25 000 to Ecotrust Canada as part of their commitment to preserving and restoring our water resources for current and future generations.

This generous donation will go towards one of four projects within the Cheakamus Community Forest (CCF), where Ecotrust Canada works in close partnership with the Resort Municipality of Whistler, the Squamish First Nation and the Lil’wat First Nation to manage CCF watersheds sustainably. Which one of the four projects the money goes to, however, is entirely dependent upon the public, thanks to RBC Blue Water Project’s innovative voting system on their Facebook page.
