Friends of the Weiser River Trail
1997 - 2018
Celebrating 21 Years!

Each year, FWRT incurs ongoing expenses for trail maintenance and improvement.  We are 100% a volunteer organization, funded by grants and our membership.  Help support the trail by purchasing Boise Open tickets and donating your Ridley’s Points, as well as signing up for Amazon Smile and Fred Meyer’s community rewards.

FWRT plans to apply for a construction and repair grant for 2019 to repair the winter damage to the trails, rolling, grading, moving large boulders and cutting down trees/limbs twice a year.from Idaho Parks and Recreation, through the Federal Recreational Trails Program.   Comments will be taken from now until January 25, 2019.


The Albertson’s Boise Open presented by Krafft is the single biggest fund raiser of the year for the Friends of the Weiser River Trail. Support the trail by purchasing your tickets now!  One hundred percent of ticket sales supports the local charity of your choice.  We have a trail supporter who matches 100% of ticket sales.  In 2015, we raised $55,000 and in 2016, we generated $50,200!!!!

DATES:  August 19-25, 2019

Albertsons Boise Open

All not for profit organizations will receive 100% of tournament ticket sales made by their organization. Whether it be individual or group sales, corporate purchases for clients or employees, the proceeds benefit organizations and the important work they do.

Furthermore, Tyson Foods adds a $50,000 bonus which is divided to these charities based upon their percentage of sales and ticket redemption.  In addition, Friends of Weiser River Trail has a generous sponsor who pledges 100% match up to $50,000!!!

The program is managed and operated through Lagardere Sports. Their marketing staff is on hand to support charity efforts by providing social and mainstream advertising, marketing ideas and all bookkeeping processes.

The program has proven to be hugely successful with over $1.4 Million raised thru the 2019 event. Another milestone was eclipsed this year as the Albertsons Boise Open hit the $20 Million mark for funds donated to local charities since the inaugural event in 1989!
