Can You Make 15,000 Miles for Rails to Trails?

15,000 mile promotion
a news release of Rails to Trails

How many trail miles can you travel between now and July 4th?

Celebrate the official start to the summer trail season by joining the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy 15,000 Miles Campaign. We are challenging members and supporters to ride, run, walk or skate 15,000 miles between Memorial Day weekend and the Fourth of July and raise $15,000 in the process to support rail-trail development across the country.

All you have to do is make a personal mileage and gift commitment to travel a specific amount of miles on trails and donate a certain amount for each mile to help us reach our goal of 15,000 miles and $15,000. The number of miles and amount of the donation is up to you!

Whether you want to make this commitment to lose weight, lower your carbon footprint or to just get outside and enjoy the season, it doesn’t matter. You’ll be benefiting and so will the rail-trails. More dollars mean more trails for you to use in the future.

While we all individually love and use rail-trails, collectively our efforts have led to the creation of more than 15,000 miles across the country. Help us get started on building the next 15,000 miles by joining with other RTC members and supporters in this one-of-a-kind campaign!

Plus…when you make a mile and gift commitment at certain levels, you will receive the following great trail essentials:

$50 - RTC t-shirt
$100 - RTC regional guidebook
$250 - 2009 RTC cycling jersey
