Range Bank announces sponsorship of 2017 Marquette Trails Festival
MARQUETTE — Range Bank announces the title sponsorship of the 2017 Marquette Trails Festival which will be held June 23-25 at Marquette Mountain.
This donation marks the third year that Range Bank has been the title sponsor of the event, which raises money to support the Noquemanon Trail Network. All proceeds from the event go toward building and maintaining Marquette’s single-track trails.
Marquette Trails Festival is part of the Noquemanon Trail Networks 501c3 and proceeds from the festival are donated back into the trails systems for new trails, maintenance, and community events. The 2016 Marquette Trails Festival raised $10,964 to donate back to the NTN.
“We are excited to be the title sponsor of the Marquette Trails Festival again this year,” said Kristy Sibilsky, Senior Vice President- Business Banker at Range Bank, in a press release. “Last year was such a successful event and we are looking forward to seeing the Marquette Trails Festival continue to grow this year.”
“Last year we had over 500 participants competing in everything from a cross country mountain bike race to a 5k trail run. We also have events specifically for kids and a bonfire and social gathering to kick off the event,” said Nicholas Dobbs, Marquette Trails Festival Race Director, in the release.
