The 2021 Trek for the Trails presented by Norway Savings Bank wrapped up on Sunday, October 3rd. Over $10,000 was raised from the event, including entry fees, pledges raised by participants, and business cash and in-kind sponsorships. The top individual fundraiser was John Keller, who raised over $1,600.
New for 2021 were three trail running routes - one at Pleasant Mountain, Bald Pate Mountain, and Raymond Community Forest. Other participants visited a LELT preserve, and many completed their 'trail passport' by visiting 4 different LELT preserves and finding the stamps for their passport at each one.
