Sonnenalp Foundation donates $4,700 to ECO Trails Program

Contact: Ellie Caryl, Trails Program Manager,  970-328-3523 

A check for $4,700 was presented this week to the ECO Trails Program by the Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation’s Michele Davis as a contribution towards continued construction of the regional trail system for pedestrians and bicyclists. The funds were raised through The Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation’s 25th Annual Casual Classic Bicycle Ride held in 2010.

Over 125 bicycle riders participated in the event, which has become known as a fun gathering of all ages and abilities on a scenic route that begins in Breckenridge and ends in Vail at the Bully Ranch restaurant at the Sonnenalp. In addition to major sponsorship by The Sonnenalp, many local retailers and service businesses in the Vail and Eagle Valley contributed door prizes, silent auction items and logistical support. Dozens of local volunteers contributed their time to help make the event a success.

The Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation has selected ECO Trails as a beneficiary of the event proceeds every year since 2001. The donated funds have been used for trail construction and this year will be allocated to the Avon to Eagle-Vail Trail project.

The 2011 Casual Classic Bicycle Ride is scheduled for Saturday, August 20. For more information about the ECO Trails program, please contact Ellie Caryl at 328-3523.
