Kilometer Markers 

Here is your chance to leave your mark on the Link Pathway in a fun and customizable way, perfectly suited to those who like to leave their mark. These kilometer markers will be precisely placed at the kilometer marks from each pathway-head kiosk. This will allow users of the trail to perfectly gauge the distance traveled, and will also be perfect for competitive events by marking the distance in permanent markers embedded in the Pathway surface. Each marker will be unique to the donor. Imagine friends or family gathering around your kilometer marker 20 years from now, discussing how this Pathway was made possible by your contribution. This is a simple but exceptionally powerful gift, and we are excited to see your idea for your marker.

  • An Engraved Stone beside the pathway with km and donor

  • Large plaques on donor wall

One Metre of Pathway

An effort like the Link Pathway can only happen with the support of an entire community, and with the power of many, big dreams can become reality. We all love the outdoors, and want to see our communities come together and participate in healthy activity. With a grassroots fundraising tier like this, we can all help to make it happen. A donation of $100 may be our entry level donation tier, but don't forget the impact thousands of individual contributions can have by building upon each other. Join your community, your families and even local companies, many of whom have already claimed their meter!

Includes: ​

  • Small plaque on donor wall

  • Charitable receipt
