Dear Friends of the Philly Pumptrack,

We received notice from the Fairmount Park Conservancy, and we are excited to announce that the Philly Pumptrack has been awarded a $5,000 grant! 

This award from the Fairmount Park Conservancy’s Physical Improvement Regrant Program will be used towards materials supporting the rain gardens, fencing, landscaping and signage.

In the acknowledgement letter, the FPC says that they are thrilled to support our program.  We are elated to have so many of you interested in helping to get Philadelphia’s first public Pumptrack built!

Thank you Fairmount Park Conservancy for the grant and your support.

PS. Please be sure to mark your calendar on May 10th, 2014 to attend the Grand Opening of the Philly Pumptrack. 

Heidi, Harlan and Kenn
