Coca-Cola Donates to Rails To Trails

I knew I loved my Classic Coke for a reason. ;-D

This summer Coca-Cola North America donated $500,000 to support Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) for grants to catalyze trail development and maintenance. RTC is directing the Coca-Cola grants to trails needing that final push to realize completion.

A prime example is the connection of the Silver Comet Trail in Georgia to the Chief Ladiga in Alabama. This trail link, 10 years in the making, will connect residents in communities from Atlanta to Anniston, Ala. Currently the Chief Ladiga offers 33 miles of rail-trails and the Silver Comet features 50 miles. When the link is completed, the trails will provide more than 100 miles of continuous off-road recreation and travel space.
