OCTOBER 22, 2022

NICER is hosted the the 4th annual Spooky Halloween Trail Walk on Saturday, October 22nd at the Hurley School Adventure Trails. Two spooky trail experiences were offered again this year!

For $10 per family, 537 community members participated in the Trick or Treat Trail, a family friendly trail experience available to anyone and everyone. Participants were encouraged to arrive in costume and bring a trick or treat bag to collect candy from the themed stations set up along the trail. The Trick or Treat Trail took place from 1:00-2:30 pm.

For $5 per person, 243 community members participated in the Terror Trail, an experience not for the faint of heart! Participants walked the dimly lit trail, which was filled with themed costume stations that ranged from strange and spooky to downright terrifying! The Terror Trail took place from 7:00-8:30 pm.

75+ individuals signed on to man themed stations along the Spooky Trail. These stations had a great time getting into character and 95% of them volunteered at both trail experiences. It was a long day and handful of the station volunteers also helped NICER organizers set up the trail that morning and helped with clean up the morning after the event.

NICER raised over $2700 during this event, with funds being used on upcoming projects and events. Thank you to everyone who participated, your support is appreciated.
