The Two-Hearted Trail Pledge begins July 1st!
Please help spread the word across the nation to benefit trails everywhere!
For the third consecutive year, Bell’s Brewery is teaming up with Partnership for the National Trails System (PNTS) to encourage people to enjoy trails across America, and in turn, raise money to protect them. From July 1 to Oct. 31, 2023, Bell’s will donate one dollar for every hour pledged online toward visiting or supporting trails. The U.S. has hundreds of thousands of trails that offer a convenient way for people to appreciate and explore the outdoors, get active and learn about history. Hours can be pledged for hiking, biking, walking, volunteering for trail maintenance, attending educational events, and more—it just must involve a trail.
Pledges for time spent on the trails can be made at bellsbeer.com/trails. Fans can also enter for a chance to win a $1000 gift card to the popular outdoor apparel retailer, REI.
“Sustainability and environmental stewardship is a huge priority for Bell’s Brewery as we share a deep appreciation for nature and time spent outdoors. We are proud to support our colleagues at PNTS another year,” said Bells Brewery Executive Vice President Carrie Yunker. “People around the nation depend on the National Trails System to be their gateway to the great outdoors, so it’s more important than ever to protect them and shine a light on the key role they play in our lives.”
This year, Bell’s aims to match last year’s donation total of $20,000. In addition, Bell’s encourages participants to collectively pledge more than 10,000 hours and exceed the 7,422 total hours pledged in 2022.
“By supporting the Partnership, Bell’s Brewery is generously elevating the value of thirty-one National Historic and Scenic Trails that traverse the entire United States. These Trails bring people from all walks of life to unique stories and experiences.” Mike Wollmer, PNTS Interim Executive Direction, said.
