Community Volunteer

Year Joined Fort Wayne Trails Board: 2015

Board Positions: Trail User and Steering Committees

Why Did You Join the Fort Wayne Trails Board?

As an avid user of the trails, I am interested in the growth and development of trails in the community.

What Does our Trail System Mean to You?

Connectivity and commonality between individuals, businesses, the community…there are many reasons people use the trails: exercise, transportation, recreation, enjoyment, convenience. This means we have a diverse population at any given time on the trails.

How Do You Use the Trails the Most?

Exercise-running or walking

What Excites You Most About FWT’s Mission?

The tremendous amount of growth in just the past few years!

What Do You Want People To Know About Fort Wayne Trails?

Specifically how they can help-whether it be through donating or volunteering.

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
