We’re extra grateful to these people who are “out in front” with their gifts of $500, $1,000 or more for Iowa By Trail! Their leadership is shining the spotlight on Iowa trails! 
Such leaders are essential for this $250,000 project. Some gave early to launch the app. Some are giving right now. All are our Iowa By Trail heroes!
