Cumberland Valley Rail Trails will be participating in "Match Madness" again, the program where Partnership for Better Health in Carlisle has committed $50,000 to a 'stretch' fund to benefit small non-profits like Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. Money donated in March will get matching support from the Partnership.


CVRT had a great 2017 with two bridges, the Rt.233 underpass, CVRTC Boxcar, restroom facilities at Shippensburg Station and almost two additional miles added to the trail. Right now, CVRT has a construction company under contract to extend the trail two miles further east from Rt.233 in Newville. They also have funding committed to add two more miles of trail late this year or next year in the center of the county.


Bottom line is we still need your support!


Money must pass through the Partnership to us....we will get 100% of what you donate plus matching funds.


If you want to donate by check: Make the check out to "Partnership For Better Health" and be sure to put CVRTC on the front of the check in the 'for' or 'memo' line. Here's the address:


Partnership for Better Health
Attention: Ann Myers
