CAMBr North 2020 Raffle
After much discussion, CAMBr has decided to continue forward with the Spring 2020 Raffle.
This yearly fundraiser is traditionally the primary source of funding for CAMBr North and funds most of the required maintenance and all new work. Our goal, based on previous years, is to raise $25,000.
It has been truly incredible to see the parking lots full at many of our trail heads. Folks are listening to the Governor’s warnings to shelter in place, but still exercising and practicing social distancing outdoors. Seeing our trails used as a way to relieve stress, get exercise, and possibly distract yourself temporarily from any worries, helps show the value, and need, for managed outdoor trails. With the continued trail use, the need for maintenance and improvements still exists from the CAMBr Trail Crew. For these reasons, the need for continuing on with the raffle presented itself clearly.
If you have the means to do so, please consider purchasing raffle tickets and donating to CAMBr North by doing so. Thanks to Main Street Bicycles, Trek Algonquin, and Village Cycle Sport, we have three awesome grand prizes this year:
- Giant Trance Advanced Pro 29 1
- Trek Stache 7
- Bontrager Line Pro Wheel Set
Details about each prize can be found on the raffle website. As always, please continue to do business with our local bike shops. The showrooms might not be open in the traditional sense, but many are taking phone orders, allowing for curbside pickup of bikes for service, and available to help with most of your riding needs.
Please note, the raffle has been extended until June 20, 2020. Assuming we are able to gather by that time, we’ll still have a raffle party at Main Street Bikes to announce the grand prize winners and to raffle off plenty of other great prizes. More details will be shared as we get closer to the date.
Thank you for all you do to help support our trails across the Chicagoland area.
Mike Angus & the Trail Crew
