Thank you! Your support is making a difference in Berks County!   
Since 2008, WalkBikeBerks has been committed to improving walking and bicycling in Berks County.  With the support of community members like yourself, we have achieved a number of accomplishments.  I've listed some of those achievements on the left bar of this letter.  
This year we are especially proud of the fact that
your financial gifts and volunteer efforts helped more schools and parents celebrate International Walk to School Day on October 5
than ever before.  We look forward to sharing an even more successful 2012 with you.


In order for WalkBikeBerks to continue our successes and to continue our work for you, we need your support.
