Friends of the Katy Trail is branching out with our new young professional group, the KT Trailblazers! This energetic group formed to help spread awareness, gain new members, and raise funds for Friends of the Katy Trail.

If you have been looking to get more involved with the Katy Trail this group is a perfect opportunity for younger individuals to join. As this group gains traction expect to see happy hours for networking (perfect opportunity to meet that good looking runner you’ve been scoping out on the Trail), volunteer opportunities (can you say good karma), and their very own fundraising event (trust us, this group can party)!

To officially become a KT Trailblazer, you will need to join as a member and be sure to denote you’d like to be a Trailblazer! If you are already a member and fall in to the young professional category (up to 35ish) send us an email so we can add you to the KT Trailblazers.
