Cranmore Donates Rock the Rec Proceeds to the Mount Washington Valley Trails Association
North Conway, NH – On August 22rd, Cranmore Mountain Resort hosted the second annual Rock the Rec event, which featured live music from local bands, The Riley Parkhurst Project, Rek’-lis and Shark Martin. 100% of the ticket proceeds were donated to the Mount Washington Valley Trails Association to fund the North Conway Rec Path. A total amount of $5,289 was donated from Cranmore. An additional $800 was raised through raffle ticket sales.
The paved path will run between Cranmore Mountain and Hemlock Lane near Wal-Mart and will provide residents and visitors with opportunities for safe, family-oriented recreation and transportation. Groundbreaking is scheduled for spring, 2020.
“Our mission is to promote health, alternative transportation options and meaningful recreation for people of all ages and abilities. We want to thank Cranmore and our event sponsors, REI, Settlers’ Green Outlet Village and the Conway Daily Sun for their support. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening and are looking forward to year three next year.” Said Larry Garland, VP and Chair of the MWV Rec Path Committee.
“This is a cause that we [Cranmore| see as an amazing opportunity and added amenity for North Conway and the Mt. Washington Valley.” Said Cranmore President & General Manager, Ben Wilcox. “We are fortunate to live in such a supportive community that also shares our passion for outdoor recreation. The Rec Path is a welcome addition that will complement the existing activities and attractions in the Valley.”
