The Trails and Open Space Coalition’s BIG Day was a BIG success! The achievement of surpassing 100 donors in 24 hours took the support of our entire community and we are thankful for everyone who donated, attended our events and spread the word about the BIG Day. A huge thank you to REI and Tap Traders for hosting TOSC.
TOSC received 106 donations, raising $2150 to help support our parks, trails and open spaces! Thank you for being a part of our BIG day.
