Rotary Biking Running Walking





History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Torrington

Total Budget: $3,500,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health, Economic and community development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Torrington has a one mile path through town. We are planning to extend the path to 8-10 miles.

There is a great need for our community to have a safe area for running/walking/biking, especially since we have no fitness center. We anticipate connecting to the existing one mile path and going along the river and outskirts of town in order to give bikers and runners a distance needed for entire family fitness. We anticipate doing the project in sections and spread it over a five year or so timeline. Funds will be used for legal, research, development, and construction. I foresee all 75 members of our club contributing to the hands on aspects of this project. We should be able to garner funding from other sources (economic development, city, county, Rec board, college, school system, and private donations and fund drives). I see this project being a shining star for the Torrington Rotary Club and having the Rotary Brand all along the trail.
