I feel a strong trail system is important to individual and community health. I am passionate about the trails, so joining the board was a logical place for me to focus my energy.
Having a safe place to exercise, encourage activity across the area, and connect communities.
I live in Huntertown, so running from Life Bridge Church or the YMCA on Dupont Road. I occasionally will ride my bike on it to avoid busy roads. Looking forward to the day it is connected in Huntertown so I have easy access via my bike.
I have seen the success the trails have on local communities across the country. I am so pleased when I go for a run on the trails and it is busy. This community is really getting engaged in the trail system.
Our trail system has a significant impact on our community, economy, and quality of life. But is doesn’t just happen. It takes years (decades) of time and the community support.
