What’s Been Raised? What’s Still Needed?

For the Safe Route to School Project, Profile School is looking to create a safe passage between our local mountain villages by way of Profile School. The Safe Route to School will be a beginner friendly non-motorized trail approximately five miles long.  This effort will help weave activity and wellness into our recreationally minded communities.

Give today to make the trail a reality.

You can have a huge impact in making this happen!
