The Statesman Capitol 10,000 has extended The Trail Foundation’s position as the 2015 beneficiary through the April 10, 2016 race. The Trail Foundation will receive 1.00 dollar from every Cap10K registration, which begins Oct. 1, 2015 at cap10k.com. During registration, race participants will also have the option to donate to the beneficiary, and the Statesman will match registrant donations up to 10,000 dollars.
“We are so pleased to announce The Trail Foundation as beneficiary of the 2016 race,” said Susie Gray, publisher of the Austin American-Statesman. “Cox Media Group, the Statesman’s parent company, believes in creating positive environmental change. The Trail Foundation’s focus on protecting and enhancing the Butler Trail at Lady Bird Lake is in line with the Statesman’s support of this corporate initiative and local community efforts.”
The Trail Foundation helps protect and enhance the Butler Trail at Lady Bird Lake through careful improvements to the Trail and advancing conservation. Working in cooperation with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, it has built restrooms and water fountains; planted native trees and flowers; renovated lakefront gathering areas and trailheads; put in mile markers; and helped create the world-class Boardwalk that has enhanced the safety, usability and scenic beauty of the Butler Trail.
“The Trail Foundation is gratified to again be the beneficiary of the Statesman Capitol 10,000,” said Susan Rankin, executive director of The Trail Foundation. “The cherished Butler Trail at Lady Bird Lake is the heart of Austin and is critical to the local economy. It’s an important factor in attracting and retaining employees and is key to Austin’s quality of life. As Austin grows, the number of Trail users grows as well. The donation from the Cap10K will enable The Trail Foundation to continue to make improvements to the Trail and advance conservation in Austin’s central greenspace.”
In its 39th year, the Cap10K is the largest 10K race in Texas and one of the top 10 in the nation. The Cap10K began in 1978 with 3,400 participants. In 2015, the race had more than 18,000 registered participants. Additional race information is available at cap10k.com.
