40th Jeux de l'Acadie campaign is a step closer to goal.

The fundraising campaign for the 40th Finals of the Jeux de l'Acadie is closer to its goal.

The campaign's goal is to raise $350,000 to cover the cost of welcoming more than 1,000 athletes from the four Atlantic Provinces next year.

Earlier this week Archway Assurance donated $25,000 to support the finals.

Grand Falls, Drummond, Saint-André and Saint Leonard will will host the competition from June 27 to June 30, 2019.

This is the first time four municipalities have joined together to host the games.
