Creative Ways to Support WTA
Trail runner Glenn Tachiyama (pictured) and Wendy Wheeler-Jacobs raised over $14,000 for WTA by selling trail-running calendars.
I'm constantly amazed at all the ways hikers help support Washington Trails Association. They challenge themselves to hike nearly every day in August during WTA's Hike-A-Thon. They've donated proceeds from books, their photos, and artwork. Through our Get-A-Member contest, they grow the community of hikers who take part in protecting our trails.
And each year, two enterprising trail-runners create a wall calendar and donate the proceeds to WTA. On Monday, Glenn Tachiyama and Wendy Wheeler-Jacob announced they raised a total of $14,672 for WTA with their 2009 Tribute to the Trail Calendar.
Thank you Glenn and Wendy for all your hard work and generosity! And to all of you who bought calendars; the local retailers who offered the calendar for sale; and companies who underwrote the cost of printing, made a gift, or matched contributions, thank you! Your contribution is helping WTA speak up for trails, lead over 80,000 hours of volunteer work, and make resources such as this web site possible.
