I *heart* My Trail

If you read this blog any amount of time, you know that I <3 the Swamp Rabbit trail. I think it's a great addition to the outdoor activities that we enjoy in and around Greenville anyways.

This trail is buzzing! Tons of people (I know, very scientific measurement!) are using this trail every day. It's cheap for it's users, because it's for free and people appreciate this free resource.

Of course it's not free to actually build and maintain a trail. Especially in times when community funding is low to start with.

The "Refresh Everything" project from Pepsi provides funding for submitted community projects that have a positive impact. The Greater Greenville Parks Foundation submitted an idea for 250K to improve the trail and make it safer for the users.

In order to get these funds, people have to vote for the idea. A lot of people have to vote for the idea! This is were you come in!

Please vote here for the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

Please vote here once a day for this idea for the rest of the month!

Please ask everyone you know, to vote here as well.

You have to create an account, but hey, since you are going to vote every day for the rest of the month anyways, that'll be worth setting up an account! I assume when you text them with your vote, you don't have to set-up an account. So if you don't want to do the account thing, please text to VOTE!!!

Share this on Facebook and your blogs.... PLEEEEEEEAAAAAAASE.

All my German friends.... Please vote too, so when you come visit, you can also use the trail... Okay, I am getting to dramatic now... ;-)
