IMBA CANADA LAUNCHES 2011 TRAIL BUILDING FUND

This year's Trail Building Fund is dedicated to keeping IMBA Canada's Trail Care Crew on the road.

Despite massive support from Parks Canada and the Trans Canada Trail, we still need to raise $50,000 to cover program delivery for 2011. Please help us bridge the gap until we can find a title sponsor to ensure the program's future.

IMBA Canada is changing the future of trails through the Trail Care Crew -- Please help keep this legacy alive.

IMBA REVEALS ‘TRAIL LOVE,’ NEW PRINT AND ELECTRONIC AD CAMPAIGN

IMBA recently rolled out a new print and electronic advertising campaign, with multiple new ads available for placement in a variety of media outlets.

“We’re calling this campaign “Trail Love,’” said Mark Eller, IMBA USA’s communications director. “The ads feature an engaging collage of photography and hand-drawn sketches to give viewers multiple entry points — they’ve got a organic feel to them that reflects the grassroots nature of IMBA and its network of chapters and clubs.” Press release.

Interested in featuring IMBA’s ads on your Canadian company’s website or print materials? Please contact IMBA Canada's Communications Coordinator rachael [dot] raven [at] imba [dot] com (Rachael Raven).
