Final Link Fundraiser

Help Fund the Final Link!

We are looking to continue the momentum towards completing the 5K course for the John Jay Cross Country team to be able to hold official home cross country meets on the full course.

Trail Donation Options

Donors in the categories below will be recognized at the trailhead map sign and in additional ways outlined below.

  • Bridge Builder $1,000 or more. Donor has name appear on the top row of the bridge plaque for bridge #3 – the final piece of the course and the closest to the schools.
  • Keystone Supporter – $500 – Donor has name on the third bridge plaque which is the last bridge to be built and the closest to the schools.
  • Boardwalk Builder – $250 – Donor has name on recognition plaques for the boardwalks in the wetland part of the course between the middle school and the second bridge.
  • Trail Blazer – $150 – Donor gets recognition as a trail blazer on the trailhead trail map signs. 
  • Trail Harrier – $100 – Donor gets recognition on the trailhead map signs. 

If donors would like to group a donation together to be given in a specific name or group, we can make that happen. For example, if members of the class of 2021 on the track team wanted to combine to give a “Bridge Building” level donation and have the recognition plaque say “John Jay Track & Field Class of 2021” that is absolutely an option we can help make happen.

We need your help to FUND The Final Link and we need you to VOLUNTEER to help build the remaining trail and structures. Why not both? 🙂

The final push for $5,000 — which will be added to our building account — will cover the purchase of remaining materials and hardware to complete over 100 linear feet of trail and boardwalk.
