Written by: Susan Richwine |

Richmond, Indiana – First Bank Richmond announced today that they will donate $5,000 to Cardinal Greenways during the month of August 2020.
Cardinal Greenways is a private, not-for- profit organization that encompasses the Cardinal Greenway, White River Greenway, Historic Wysor Street Depot and Cardinal Equestrian Trail. It is the longest rail-trail in Indiana and spans 62 miles from Marion through Muncie to Richmond in East Central Indiana, with a road section from Gaston to Jonesboro that is approximately an additional 15 miles. The contribution supports the organization’s mission of enhancing the quality of life by developing and operating corridors and trails to connect people and communities. These funds were specifically allocated to sponsor the organization’s annual BikeTOURberfest this fall.

“First Bank Richmond has been a great community partner since the very beginning of the Cardinal Greenway in Richmond. Through their team members serving as volunteers and on our committees to being Title sponsor of our main fundraising event BikeTOURberfest they have been with us every step of the way. This support has helped us grow and continue providing this great community resource for the thousands who use it every year. We look forward to this partnership continuing for years to come!” - Brian Schleeper Wayne County District Director, Cardinal Greenways
