Liberty Athletic Club Boosts the Karen’s Trail Campaign

HWPI is immensely grateful to Liberty Athletic Club for presenting several upcoming events in support of the Karen’s Trail Campaign. Please see the video below for details on how you can participate in one or all of these events.

As many of you are aware, on August 26, 2016, Liberty member Karen McKeachie, a 63-year-old triathlete from Ann Arbor, was killed on Dexter-Chelsea Road doing one of the things she loved: riding her bike.

A few weeks after the accident, Lew Kidder, Karen’s husband of 37 years, reached out to the Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative (HWPI). Lew had heard of the group’s efforts to develop new, non-motorized pathways throughout Washtenaw County, and he graciously invited them to be a part of honoring Karen’s life and legacy.

Shortly thereafter, HWPI announced the Karen’s Trail Campaign, a community-wide effort to raise funds that will support the development of Washtenaw County’s Border-to-Border Trail system. These new pathways will honor Karen’s life and legacy by expanding safe, recreational opportunities for everyone in the region.

Liberty Athletic Club is pleased to present several events in support of the Karen’s Trail Campaign. Please see the video above.
