Two North Okanagan friends will literally take a stand for the Okanagan Rail Trail.

Kristin Postill and Brittney Page, lifelong friends, and who both grew up with Kalamalka Lake in their backyard, will ‘Stand Up For The Trail’ on Saturday, July 15.

The pair will standup paddleboard the shoreline of Kal Lake alongside the trail to raise funds for trail construction.

“We really wanted to create something that would not only help raise money but bring people together in an active way,” said Postill, now an advertising professional in New York City.

Postill and Page, a professional volleyball player and member of Canada’s national women’s team, have set a lofty goal of $50,000 to raise in only a few days, but they are used to aiming high – and succeeding.

Postill spent many years as a professional equestrian show jumper.

“After living in 10 different countries over the past decade I have come full circle back to the Okanagan and never been more appreciative,” said Page. “The Okanagan Rail Trail will no doubt be a distinctive addition to our community, setting us apart on an international scale. The Okanagan isn’t just a place to live, it’s a way of life which the rail trail initiative exemplifies perfectly”.
