COGGS is thrilled to announce the 11th Annual Gala
on Saturday, March 18, 2023!

This event is our largest fundraiser and all contributions are used to support our mission to develop sustainable trails, equitable trail access across the Twin Ports, and a welcoming outdoor recreational culture by promoting opportunities, education, programming, partnerships, and healthy outdoor fun. 

Over the past few years, we have been honored to watch our fellow community members take to the trails to escape, laugh, and enjoy the beautiful outdoor oasis that we are so fortunate to call home. The importance of the trail system for ALL riders regardless of age, race, gender, physical mobility or socioeconomic status has never been more important to our organization. 

It is COGGS vision to eliminate barriers that prevent accessibility and work to provide an outdoor space where all members of the community can feel at home.
