Athletic Brewing Two for the Trails Grant Award


We are excited that the Athletic Brewing Company selected the Trail Conference as a recipient of their Two for the Trails grant program. The generous $5,000 grant will help fund trail improvements in the Northern Region NJ State Parks with minimal project restrictions, which is incredibly valuable for the work we do – this flexibility allows us to respond to emerging needs, storm events, and other priorities identified by our volunteers. Unrestricted funds make it possible for us to act quickly in the face of emergencies and do work where it’s needed most. Our planned work utilizing the Two for the Trails award includes continuing to explore new and intuitive loop-style trail configurations to make circular hikes and navigation easier than ever. This follows a Two for the Trails grant received in 2021 for crucial trail improvements in Harriman-Bear Mountain State Parks.

Athletic Brewing, a non-alcoholic beer company dedicated to making craft brews, received 190 applications from around the globe with requests totaling $6.2 million in 2022. Their mission is to positively impact the health and happiness of their customers, while greatly impacting their communities and environment for the better. The Two for the Trails program is a cornerstone of their mission where they donate 2% of all sales to the program with the commitment “we are excited to help wherever our communities need us.”

We are thankful for this support! See the Trail Conference and the exciting work Athletic Brewing generously aids here:
