Prize Winners Announced: Over $145,000 Raised During Trail Karma Month

Aug 6, 2020
by Trailforks  

For the month of July, we gave you more reason to give back to the trails you love to enjoy with Trail Karma Month. Trail Karma Month was a campaign to raise awareness and increase funding for trail associations around the world. More so than before, trail associations are spread thin as trail maintenance increases and access to resources decreases. Due to COVID-19, funding is being cut, while more and more people are outside using the trails. There is a large gap between current funding and what is required to build and maintain the trails that bring us so much joy.

Read on to see who took home the incredible prizes for donating to a trail association(s) betwen July 1st - 31st 2020. While there might not be any prizes up for grabs, we still encourage everyone around the world to support their favourite trails by donating via Trail Karma. Trail Karma provides a direct way for you to put 100% of your donation into trail associations and builders developing trail systems and it's rewarding to know you're helping out your local builders even when there aren't prizes on the line.

Thank you everyone and happy trails!
