Support for Friends of the Katy Trail Rolls In

Each year the small staff of two at the Friends of the Katy Trail office is challenged to raise more than $600,000 to pay for all maintenance and improvements of the 3.5 mile hike and bike Trail. That money is raised through memberships and private donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. This summer we have been fortunate to be the recipient of several gifts from generous neighbors in the community. In May, Preston Center Rotary Club granted the Friends of the Katy Trail $2,000 at their annual Charities Day. And just a few weeks ago, Uptown Dallas presented us with a check for $8,750 from money raised at their highly attended Celebrate Uptown.

Thank you to Preston Center Rotary Club, Uptown Dallas and all those who make donating the Friends of the Katy Trail a priority. The reason we have such an incredible resource in the heart of Dallas is because of you!
