About Celebrate Every Mile

30 years ago, a group of community visionaries came together to imagine a way to preserve history, educate the public, connect neighborhoods, and create open access to the Elizabeth River. Today, we honor that legacy in the Elizabeth River Trail, 10.5 miles with Something FOR Everyone!

We believe that everyone deserves safe access to green space and that trails can transform communities. Honor the visionaries of the past and celebrate our future connections to the region's trail system with the “Celebrate Every Mile” campaign that allows you to sustain the ERT Foundation through a monthly donation with some meaningful miles.

$10= our existing 10.5-mile trail
$21= our trail length connecting an eastern extension to the Virginia Beach line
$41= the 41 miles in a fully connected South Hampton Roads Trail
$105=10.5 miles without the decimal, and the way we get the rest of the trail built!
