(Victoria, BC – May 28, 2015) The Official Ground Breaking for the PISE Track was held today with the announcement of an additional $150,000 contribution from the Province of British Columbia. The project, which will be a fully accessible 4-lane, 400 metre track, includes spectator seating and a wheelchair accessible incline training area. Over 80% in pledges towards the track project has been secured to date.
Phase I of the track, a multi-purpose Track and Training Zone, adjacent to the building overlooking the field, is currently being utilized by athletes, students and PISE members. The recent donation from the Government of British Columbia brings PISE closer to its goal of hosting a track grand opening in Fall 2015. To date the BC Government has provided $250,000 towards the $1M+ project – the largest contribution towards the Track Project to date. Read the full press release.
