Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail surpassed its fundraising goal of $200,000 to bring in $274,838 through its 40th anniversary campaign. 

The campaign launched last year to raise money for four purposes: increasing MST awareness, installing signs and kiosks, building boardwalks and providing tools for volunteers. 

Of the money raised, $105,000 went to raising awareness — including a new website and trail guides — $60,000 went to signs and kiosks, $60,000 went to bridges and boardwalks and $50,000 went to tools.
