Donations

2024: Lynden has a rich history in agriculture, so this year we will be emphasizing how farming has affected our area. The Lynden Museum on Front Street, is putting a spotlight on the agricultural industry by way of a new exhibit. Your participation in 2024 Lynden Tractor Trot is supporting this worthy cause.

2023 Update: The Tractor Trot race directors, along with GBRC, are excited to announce that through the amazing generosity of the community and sponsors, they were able to raise over $5200 in support of The Maddie Foundation. The Foundation helps raise money for research into SPG15, a rare, progressive neurological disease that is like motor neuron disease/ALS.

Thank you again to the amazing support of the GBRC community in support of this cause.
