The G2G Rail Trail has just launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money through the community and we need your help to complete it! The teaser video on Facebook has reached 29,000 views being shared 1,392 times. This has helped us to start spreading the word about the campaign.
Each trail segment and community can benefit directly from this $150,000 fundraising campaign. We’ve had a tremendous amount of support in the past from communities that are touched by the G2G Rail Trail experience. The 127 km route is made up of the amazing Kissing Bridge Trailway, Perth Harvest Pathway and the Lake Huron Route – this includes the GART!
The Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail surrounds cyclists and hikers with the richness of Ontario’s pastoral landscape and rural heritage. Through hushed forest groves and rolling Mennonite farmland, across river valleys and wetlands, past 13 villages and towns, to the sunset horizon of one of the world’s Great Lakes, visitors of all fitness and skill levels can enjoy any part of the G2G’s 127-km length through four counties. Completion of the G2G Rail Trail opens Ontario’s pastoral heartland to the global fitness and recreation phenomena of backpacking and cycle tourism. The G2G helps rural Ontarians share their countryside and hospitality with the world.
G2G is launching a Crowdfunding campaign with the new charity based fundraising platform made by Indiegogo, called Generosity. All funds raised go directly to developing and improving the trail. All the communities along the trail will benefit directly as well as future users.
