In February 2022, Kate Dixon retired after 15 years as Executive Director of Friends of the MST. To honor Kate for all she accomplished for the trail and for Friends, the Board launched the Kate Dixon Legacy Campaign to provide a way for people who want to honor her to make a gift for the trail.

We are thrilled that nearly 250 donors gave to the campaign, resulting in more than $125,000 raised for the MST! That money will support our work to build and maintain the Mountains-to-Sea Trail into the future and enhance our ability to improve and build the MST along the Coastal Crescent route.

Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail is so appreciative of everyone who supported this campaign and for Kate’s leadership in growing the MST and the MST community. A special thanks goes to board member Susan Hester who spearheaded the Kate Dixon Legacy Campaign and to the volunteer committee who gave their time to help us honor Kate.
