PREVIOUS NORWAYNE HPAC BENEVOLENCE PROJECTS

We love giving back to our community that gives so much to us! 

Here are some of our most recent Benevolence Projects in the Wayne County area!

THE COUNTY LINE TRAIL APP

In 2016, we published a technology app that enhances the user's journey on the County Line Trail. You can learn more about it and download it via the links on the Home Page and the About the App pages of this website. 

THE ANNUAL COUNTY LINE TRAIL 5K, 10K, AND RAINBOW RUN

Every April, we put on a community 5k, 10k, and Rainbow Run (color run) on the County Line Trail. We offer many free activities at this event, as well as rock bottom registration prices in comparison to other local races.  

THE ANNUAL TRAIL TRAVELER'S "COUCH TO 5K" RUNNING CLUB

In conjunction with the County Line Trail 5k, 10k, and Rainbow Run, the Norwayne HPAC also puts on an annual running club for FREE for Norwayne students to train up for the races. Students are also educated about healthy living so that wellness can become a part of their lifestyle in and out of the running club.

In April 2017, the Norwayne HPAC donated $500 of
