LOCO-MOTION Raises $140K

04/09/2020

 

Every year, we look forward to connecting with our local community at LOCO-MOTION and sharing our vision for the future of the VINE TRAIL. LOCO-MOTION is both an incredibly important fundraising event for the VINE TRAIL and our favorite way to spend time with each of you while we recognize your support.

A primary goal of the VINE TRAIL is to enhance the health and safety of our kids, our residents, our visitors, our community. Due to uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, bringing you all together at this time clearly did not support this goal.

We thought long and hard about whether to continue our fundraising efforts and came to the conclusion that we need the VINE TRAIL now more than ever ~ to connect our communities, to provide access for safe vehicle-free transportation, and above all, to offer free health and wellness opportunities for our residents and visitors.

To that end, we converted LOCO-MOTION from an in-person event on March 21 to a fun online experience -- LOCO-MOTION ONLINE! -- a Fund-a-Need in support of completing the St Helena to Calistoga section of the VINE TRAIL. 

Your support was amazing. Together, we raised nearly $140,000!

To date, we have completed over 19 miles of VINE TRAIL with engineering and design work in progress on 15 additional miles. We expect construction to begin on the St Helena to Calistoga section in 2021.

The VINE TRAIL will be enjoyed by residents and visitors for generations to come. None of this is possible without your support. Thank you.

See you on the trail!
