Babcock State Park Donations

As many of you know, June 24th in WV we experienced flooding of the "1000 year" proportion. So many of our local communities were impacted and even devastated. So much personal loss was felt even in our running community. What you may or may not know, Babcock was given a hard hit. Most of the park was spared however the Narrow Gauge and Sewell Road had major damage. We worked with the park and had trail work days PLUS made donations that assisted to get the trails open for our October Sticks & Stones 15k run.  


The good news - and important - we CAN continue to help through donations to the WV State Park Foundation. These funds are tax deductible and go directly - and quickly - to the park to be used. I have been through this whole online process and it is easy. We are able to donate to the park of our choice whether you mail it in or do it online. If you donate online then at the end you click "Add special instructions to the seller" and specify Babcock. You will get an immediate email confirmation and a letter from the foundation next day. Please share and spread the word - Let us come together to help Babcock - Babcock is a very special place.... and right now we need to show that. Thank you all-- Happy Trails!
