Take the Ball Challenge and raise money for trails
To ensure the long-term success of WTA's trail program, he and his wife, Susan Ball, established the Greg Ball Trail Fund to build a continual source of funding for trail maintenance projects in Washington. To date, disbursements from the Greg Ball Trail Fund have helped support WTA youth camps on the Greg Ball Trail in Wallace Falls State Park and this year, they'll help us cope with storm damage recovery.
You can help Washington Trails Association build the Greg Ball Trail Fund by taking part in the 2007 Ball Challenge. The basic gist is that you sign up for a day of trail work and then collect pledges from your friends, family, colleagues and admirers in honor of your hard work. All the money you collect goes into the Greg Ball Trails Fund. And, the more you raise, the more super fantastic outdoor gear you can earn. WTA will host two special work parties on May 5 and May 20 at Grand Ridge Park open only to Ball Challenge participants or you can sign up for any trail work day in May.
Your support, as a participant or by donating to a participant's campaign, will ensure the continued success of WTA's trail maintenance program. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through this event and with the anonymous $1,000 pledge we just received, we're off to a good start! Please consider either participating or contributing. This is one event where every pledge really counts.
