We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2016 GoodWorks grant: Salem Area Trail Alliance!
This grant is the last large influx of funding needed in order to move into the construction phase of the Salem Bike Park and Trail Facility. The facility will include 2 miles of cross-country trails and two pump tracks, one dedicated to young children and beginners, the other to challenge more advanced riders. The trails will integrate 8-10 bicycle trail features throughout.
The goal of the GoodWorks grant our club awards annually is to support the health, education and general welfare of the people in our city – primarily the youth. We think this project will do just that, and so much more. We love this city, and enjoy finding and backing projects that help to make it a better place. What a fitting project for this year’s Rotary International theme: “Be A Gift To The World.”
We look forward to sharing more about this project over the coming months.
For now? Pick up your tickets to the February 13, 2016 Charity Auction to help support this deserving project, as well as numerous other GoodWorks projects both locally and internationally.
