Dear Ale Trail Hiker,

Happy Holidays and thanks for your support of the Foothills Rotary Club and our Beneficiaries! In November we distributed our first checks to our beneficiaries so thank you very much for all your support.

We wanted to update you with some year-end statistics and here are some highlights for the Trail since we launched at the end of May this year:

  • Over $9,000 raised
  • Over 1600 visits to our Trail Partners - MANY THANKS to them
  • 970 Hikers have registered for the Trail
  • The 2:00 pm hour on Saturdays is the most popular hour for checking in at a partner.

If you are looking for a belated stocking stuffer (or New Year's present) for your friends and family, consider buying a Trail Pass for them. You can buy one here and we will mail them out to you. Or contact us after you place your order and we will meet up with you and hand deliver them to you!

If you haven't purchased a trail pass yet, get into the Season's Spirit and purchase a Trail Pass via the app to help our local charities and start your hike.

Finally, stay tuned. We will have some exciting announcements in January about the Trail and our Trail Partners and an update to our new DonorTrail Platform.

Have safe and Happy Holidays and we hope to see you on the Trail,

Ale Trail Team
