It’s My Park Day

Our next It’s My Park Day is on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 9 am to 1 pm. Please join us at the Virginia Cook Respite (intersection of the trail and St. Michael’s) for trail landscaping, face painting, dog adoptions, breakfast and lunch from our restaurant sponsors (including Hamburger Man), and much more!

5K race on April 26 @ 5 pm

Save the date of April 26 @ 5 pm for our first ever 5K race on the trail!

We are looking for both race sponsors to subsidize the costs as well as volunteers to help on race day.  Please email us at info@northaventrail.org if you can help with one or both of these. We need your help to make the race a success!

Holiday Light the Trail Event

Thank you again to everyone who joined us for the Holiday Lights on the Trail event last night!  We had approximately 250 attendees – one of our largest and most successful events to date.  Here are a few pictures from the event.  More are posted on our Facebook page and on our Twitter feed (@NorthavenTrail).

A special thank to you to all of our corporate sponsors (Hollywood Feed, Corner Bakery, Celebrity Bakery, Simply Fit Meals, Starbucks, and Top Pot Doughnuts), as well as to our neighborhood donors (the Roger Andres Family, Zoe and David Bonnette, Lisa and Dr. Jeff Genecov, Ms. Launa Huffines, Lee Kleinman and Dr. Lisa Umholtz, Jamie and Mark Shrayber, Dr. Arlene Sachs, and Drs. Judy and Stacy Wood).  Thanks to our neighborhood donors, Ruthie’s Rolling Food truck was able to serve delicious food at no charge to our attendees!

Many of you asked about future sponsorship opportunities, and we definitely have such opportunities available.  These include event (full and partial) sponsors, as well as trail amenities (such as water fountains, dog waste stations, and more).  Many of these opportunities are posted to our website now, and we’ll also be updating soon to include event sponsorships in addition to our “on the trail” sponsorship opportunities already available.

Email info@northaventrail.org if you want to help out as a volunteer, make a donation, or just have a general question about the trail. And please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get all of the latest trail news.

Stay tuned for our next event, It’s My Park Day, coming up in the spring!  Hope to see you on the trail soon.
