Trails & Ales entry fees rise on August 16!


Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Sports Backers today!  Private support is vital to our mission of motivating locals and visitors alike to be more active through our participatory events and community outreach programs.  Eleven percent (11%) of our annual budget must come from philanthropic sources that allow us to do things like:

  • Buy athletic shoes for children in need
  • Encourage employers to offer workplace wellness programs
  • Advocate for safe and convenient bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure
  • Offer affordable training programs for adults and children
  • Develop fun, new events for walkers, runners, and bicyclists of all levels

With your support, we can make this region a more attractive and vibrant place to live where safe opportunities to walk, run, bike, swim, or workout abound and where access to these activities are available to all—regardless of age or income level.  Thank you for considering an investment in our future.
