To be an endurance runner you need stamina, motivation, and a vision of success. Zap Endurance knows what it takes to train runners to achieve their most ambitious goals. Perhaps that is why Zap’s leaders understood that, to make the Middle Fork Greenway a reality, dedicated operational leadership was required. They have entrusted the Blue Ridge Conservancy with a multi-year grant to provide the leadership to drive this extraordinary project forward. We are truly grateful to Zika and Pete Rea for their vision and support.
The Middle Fork Greenway has had incredible support from our local business community!!! 118 businesses and community donors raised over $113,000 during the Round-Up for the Greenway” event! Businesses asked their customers to Round Up to the next dollar, or gave a percentage of sales, and some gave a donation. We will have another Round-Up in 2019!!
