A new rest station on the Tottenham section of the Trans Canada Trail system has been created in memory of a young local resident.

Keanan Boston was just 21 months old when he passed away. His parents, Loretto residents, Kevin and Cheryl Boston, made the decision to donate Keanan’s liver, kidneys, and heart, to others who will benefit through a live saving donation.

The new bench and rest station was funded by the Tottenham Oldtimers Slo-pitch League.

“We are so grateful to the staff at the Town of New Tecumseth who worked with us to design, produce, and install the beautiful rest stop,” Kevin and Cheryl said. “A very special thanks to the Tottenham Oldtimers Slo-pitch League for generously funding the project and continued support.”

The rest station features a new bench and plaque with Keanan’s photo, some information about him, as well a history of the Oldtimers Slo-pitch League.

The rest stop is located 1 km south of the 2nd Line of New Tecumseth on the trail.

In memory of Keanan, Kevin and Cheryl are also raising funds in support of SickKids Hospital, Alliston Early ON Centre, and organ donation awareness.
