Developing a Community. Creating a Legacy.
Campus Trails Legacy Fund presents the Huntsville Hospital Foundation with $30,000
Sitting on 32 acres of land nestled in the trees off Muskoka Road 3 North (right beside Huntsville Hospital), the Campus Trails development by Greystone is firmly rooted in its mission to foster an active community of wellness, culture, and connectivity.
Greystone has maintained a strong reputation in Muskoka in both commercial and residential construction since 1995; and their deep commitment to the surrounding community is well known. “We strive to support our community and believe that ‘Campus Trails’ will deliver an active lifestyle that promotes healthy living, active connectivity to nature and an environment of wellness to feature all that Muskoka has to offer,” says Pat Dubé, owner of Greystone Project Management.
Pat Dubé has a long history of supporting the Huntsville Hospital Foundation (HHF); and his dedication continues with his establishment of the philanthropic Campus Trails Legacy Fund.
The Campus Trails Legacy fund has pledged to donate $1,000 to the Hospital Foundation in the name of every owner in the Campus Trails project. This translates to $30,000 for The Tom building, $100,000 for the second phase, and more as the community grows.
The first cheque for $30,000 was presented to the Hunstville Hospital Foundation on October 13th outside of The Tom at Campus Trails, with residents, Foundation administrators, community members, and Greystone team members in attendance.
Katherine Craine, Executive Director of Huntsville Hospital Foundation explains, “The Campus Trails project is visionary, just like it’s builder Pat Dubé and Greystone for creating the Campus Trails Legacy fund. They have the vision of a community that is connected, healthy, and vibrant and one that promotes healthcare and wellness. Their leadership is inspirational. What a beautiful act to honour the new buyers of The Tom and the newest build, the Alexander with a generous donation to the hospital.”
“We hope the Campus Trails Legacy fund will either reinforce existing relationships or foster new involvement within the healthcare community,” says Dubé – and according to residents, this is exactly what’s begun to happen.
When resident Kathleen Miller was introduced to her suite last Christmas, she received a gift; and part of that gift was a $1,000 donation to the Hospital from Pat Dubé. “We were thrilled to see this included in our gift package,” says Miller, “and we're happy to carry our donations forward as part of the legacy fund. I already make donations to the hospital in honour of my late husband, and I can continue to do this in his honour. Contributing to this initiative is important. The legacy fund provides a unique opportunity to do that, and goes well with the community-driven, health-oriented environment cultivated by Campus Trails as a whole.”
Bill and Mary Rashleigh (President of the Huntsville Rotary Club), are brand new residents of the Tom, and attended the cheque presentation on the 13th of October: “We want to support the hospital and we like the fact that the Tom is donating money to the hospital in our name. We were already donating, and the legacy fund inspired us to give more.”
With The Tom already built and bustling with activity, the next phase of Campus Trails is well underway with the Alexander, featuring rooftop terraces and loft units overlooking Fairy Lake and the magnificent rolling landscape of Huntsville. “It’s very comfortable and we’re very fortunate to live in this part of the world. We like the fact that when we look out, we see the trees, which have been very beautiful this Fall with all the colours,” say Bill and Mary.
