RTC Wins Pacifico Challenge!

Thanks to the overwhelming support of members and supporters across the country, we won the most votes in Pacifico's summertime "Make Adventure Happen" promotion! Your votes throughout the campaign, and in particular during a few days at the end, helped vault us into the lead and secure the grand prize.

All told, you helped us earn more than $50,000 for our trail-building work around the country!

That's an incredible boost, and we can't thank you enough for participating and supporting us. We also want to thank Pacifico for including us in this fun promotion alongside three other worthy organizations: Surfrider, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Best Friends Animal Society. 

We have a lot of exciting programs and projects this money will help fund, and we'll keep you posted in the coming weeks and months about how your support--in the simple act of voting for us--will make a huge difference in our trail-building work across the country. Thank you!

Victory toast by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy.

Hooray!  I voted almost every day despite the fact that it looked like we were trailing the Best Friends Animal Society.  It was down to the wire.  This is a testament to the increasing amount of cycling and outdoor activity that is happening across the country and how many more people are looking for a trail near them on which to walk, cycle, and otherwise enjoy the outdoors.  Kudos!

FANTASTIC!!! Kudos to all the work you do to enhance the riding experiences of all cyclists and hikers across the country. Can't wait until the day when we can ride from coast to coast on bike trails. Again...thanks for all the work you do on our behalf!!
