Fundraise for CVNP trails
This year participants will also be competing to raise funds for the Conservancy's TRAILS FOREVER endowment fund that will ensure Cuyahoga Valley National Park will have the resources to maintain and operate -- in perpetuity -- a world-class trail system. The TRAILS FOREVER fundraising campaign is open to everyone -- not only runners. And yes, there are prizes!
Prizes awarded to top fundraisers include a year's worth of tickets to CVNP events such as Topography at the Ledges, the popular Dinner in the Valley, our unique Heritage Series Concerts and the magical Polar Express. A TRAILS FOREVER shirt will be awarded to everyone who raises at least $50. Ask ten friends to donate $5 each and you're off to a great start!
Remember, every contribution helps! All funds go directly to maintaining, enhancing, and expanding CVNP. Our goal is to raise $10 million by 2016 and so far we have raised $1.3 million already. With your help, we'll pass that finish line.
Please consider supporting the TRAILS FOREVER campaign to preserve, protect and enhance our national park trails. It will only take a minute to register to fundraise!
