19 Apr BFGoodrich® Tires announces Outstanding Trails Program presented by Tread Lightly!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CENTERVILLE, UT. (Apr 19, 2021)— Tread Lightly!, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting responsible outdoor recreation through stewardship and educational programs, is announcing a new partnership with the BFGoodrich® Tires Outstanding Trails Program.
Each year the Outstanding Trails Program provides opportunities for off-roading clubs across America to nominate trails to receive grants for education and preservation. This year, Tread Lightly! will complete an East Coast and West Coast project to promote sustainable off-road trail use. Grants will also be distributed to Tread Lightly! Member Clubs to complete projects on their local trails.
“BFGoodrich is very proud to incorporate the Tread Lightly! ethic into this year’s Outstanding Trails Program,” said Harold Phillips, global general manager for BFGoodrich Tires and Tread Lightly! board chairman. “We believe in sustainable, responsible trail use and are excited to see what projects are completed with these funds.”
Since 2006, BFGoodrich has awarded more than $200,000 in grants to support organizations dedicated to conserving off-road trails. Past grant recipients have installed educational signage, improved infrastructure, and repaired local off-roading trails.
“We’d like to thank BFGoodrich for their support of Tread Lightly!’s mission and letting our team assist in these stewardship projects and awarding this year’s Outstanding Trails grants,” said Matt Caldwell, Tread Lightly! executive director. “Not only does this help protect trail access, but it also helps us share our responsible trail use message nationally.”
Clubs are required to be active, supporting members of Tread Lightly! to be eligible to apply for funding. To join Tread Lightly!, visit treadlightly.org/support/members. For more information on BFGoodrich Tires, visit bfgoodrichtires.com.
