With the completion of the second year of T.R.A.I.L.S. grants, Polaris Industries announced it has granted $591,657 in both years to local, state and national ATV clubs, according to the company’s press release.
This year, Polaris granted $91,199 to 10 organizations in seven states. In both years, Polaris has helped 69 ATV organizations in 37 states.
Mike Dougherty, general manager of the Polaris ATV division, says Polaris is thrilled with the continued interest and response of the program.
“Polaris is proud to have a thriving program that gives back to our riding community,” he said in the release, “because it’s only together that we can ensure we’ll have great places to ride for years to come.”
T.R.A.I.L.S. stands for: Trail Development, Responsible Riding, Access, Initiatives, Lobbying and Safety. It was started in January 2006 to assist ATV clubs, associations and grassroots groups to ensure the future of ATV riding.
