Be a Part of New Brunswick Ciclovia
April 14th is right around the corner, as we are getting ready for our first Ciclovia for 2019!
Since 2013, NBT and our partners have been hosting New Brunswick Ciclovia to open the streets of New Brunswick so residents and visitors can enjoy miles of open streets. Along the route, there are lots of activities to get people of all ages moving -- Zumba, basketball, skateboarding, sports zones, dancing and more! The streets are filled with music and art activities, too. And health screenings and information about how to live healthier are provided to anyone who is interested. It’s part of NBT’s work to help increase wellness in our city. In New Brunswick, the child obesity rate is more than twice the national average and we’re working hard to address this issue so that our kids grow up healthy. We host 3 events each year to provide this opportunity to our neighbors.
We are actively seeking partners for Ciclovia and invite you to join us as we welcome thousands of people to enjoy this event. We need organizations to put on physical activities, arts-related performances and other hands-on activities, to provide healthcare information, to serve as road monitors, and lots more. It takes a lot of volunteers and partners to pull off an event this big!
We also need sponsors to help us underwrite the costs of Ciclovia. We have a wide range of sponsorship levels available for the remaining Ciclovia events of 2019. Your sponsorship helps us pay for police, public works, activity areas, volunteer costs, and more. Each Ciclovia costs almost $30,000 to put on and keep it free for all who participate.
We hope to see you all out on the Route on April 14th!
