A group of Team Epic donors has contributed a $20,000 MATCH fund to DOUBLE your impact!   We love Washington trails—but we’re biased. So we asked local pros Jill Kintner and Luke Strobel to weigh in on the trails your donations support. “Washington’s trails are unlike anywhere else,” says Olympic mountain biking bronze medalist Jill Kintner. “I’ve ridden around the world, and there're just amazing trails right here, and a great sense of community around them.”
