Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Dominic Cardy was on hand to officially cut the ribbon for a brand new walking/running track at Gibson Neill Memorial Elementary School in Fredericton on Sept. 27.
The school raised over $100,000 for the new infrastructure located at the back of the school property. Financial support came in from the Nashwaaksis Lions Club, the Nashwaaksis Y Service Group, Riverview Ford, the Fredericton Royals and the province's Regional Development Corporation.
"Thank you to all parents, staff, students and community members who made this dream a reality," said Vice-Principal Heather Theriault after the ceremony.
Following the festivities, students, staff, parents and visitors joined in for the Terry Fox walk around the new track.
