Cycle Canalway 
As all outdoor enthusiasts know, sometimes you get a little wet.. it's part of the fun! We had a great time at Cycle Canalway this past Saturday and, bonus , we raised money for the Towpath.

This weekend, I spent some late nights on the LeanDog boat with a team of tech wizards who volunteered their time at Cleveland GiveCamp. We created a brand new web experience for Canalway Partners, and 225 Cleveland GiveCamp volunteers created web pages for 21 local nonprofits!

30 Years of National Heritage Areasnha
 Did you know the Ohio & Erie Canalway was the fifth National Heritage Area to be designated? There are now 49 across the nation.
National Heritage Areas celebrate and preserve the nationally important stories of this country - our industrial, military and cultural history and other defining stories that make us unique. 
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the opening of the first National Heritage Area, the Illinois and Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor,
 we'll be sharing facts and stories about the NHA program.

The Towpath Trilogy



The Towpath Trilogy race series highlights different sections of the Towpath Trail at different times of the year. The Trilogy begins with the Towpath Half Marathon in the spring, followed by the Towpath Ten-Ten in June and the Towpath Marathon, which consists of half, 10K and full marathon lengths, in October.  


All proceeds from the event benefit Canalway Partners, a nonprofit organization that actively develops a variety of events and projects to preserve, promote and educate the public about the area surrounding one of Northeast Ohio's most valuable resources - our park system along the Ohio Canal.
