A girl rides a mountain bike in front of her father on the Hatchery Creek TrailA big CAMBA THANK YOU to everyone who stepped up in support of CAMBA’s tremendously successful year-end fundraising drive. Thanks to your generosity, we not only met our goal, we surpassed it and then some.

We hoped to raise $11,000, which represented 50% of our budget for the next phase of the Hatchery Creek Rehab project. The campaign received a welcome boost from Marks Group Wealth Management who threw down a clutch $3,000 challenge match. Our faithful supporters and donors quickly rose to the challenge and met the match.

Here’s how it all adds up:

$11,100.00 – 98 online GoFundMe donations

$    775.00 – 3 direct mail donations

$  3,000.00 – Marks Group Wealth Management match

$14,885.00 – Total

Thank you for your support of this initiative. This will greatly help our budget and planning for the coming trail work season.

But wait, there’s more!

Resurfaced Hatchery Creek TrailIt is with heartfelt gratitude that we acknowledge a significant and very timely grant from the Kipfer Family Foundation in the amount of $10,000. They were inspired to donate to CAMBA by the goals of the project to resurface the trail and thereby expand the number of riders of differing skill levels who will be able to enjoy riding at Hatchery Creek.  Thank you very much to the Kipfer Family for this generous gesture.

With this generous support, we can comfortably state that the 2021 phase of the Hatchery Creek Rehab Project is fully funded.

We have heard from some riders who like the rough, eroded trail that has developed from years of getting so much use. While we feel it remains important that our closest linear trail to Hayward be accessible to a wider range of riders, we will be working to add some more advanced options in this second phase. If you have some ideas on what you would like to see, be specific in the comment section at the bottom of this page.

Thanks again to everyone!
