About Thirty Miles for Thirty Years
The Thirty Miles for Thirty Years challenge is a self paced fundraiser we are asking people to participate in to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We would like you to explore 30 miles of our nation's trails, track your progress, and raise ten dollars per mile you explore. You can even create your own page to share on social media so your friends and family can track your progress. Even if you don't fundraise, we would love you to track your miles and help celebrate our 30th anniversary.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 dollars we will use to better fulfill the need for trails education, and to expand our direct role in such things as increased trail volunteer numbers across America, increased recognition of trails as an economic driver in need of funding, and a more robust International Trails Symposium.
We believe that trails are a vital part of the American experience, and access to high quality and well maintained trails should not be taken for granted. That’s why American Trails works with everyone, from legislatures to trail alliances to trail users, to educate, advocate, and bring access and visibility to trail issues. We are the only organization in the country supporting ALL trail types, including hiking, biking, equestrian, ATV, water, and snow.
Accept this challenge and create your own supporter page by clicking on "start fundraising", and share your progress with your family and friends. You can use your page to raise money, track your journey, and post updates using your own words or fitness apps like Strava, MapMyFitness, or your FitBit (make sure to sync it and make your workouts public.) You can also share your progress on social media by linking your supporter page to your Facebook or Twitter account!
Don't want to compete solo? Create or join a team! Get together with your local club, local REI store, or your workplace to get everyone outside on the amazing trails in your area. Special prizes will be awarded to the team with the most miles completed and the most funds raised.
