Every Body Walk! Campaign
Ed McBrayer, Pete Pellegrini, and Maxine Rock formed the PATH Foundation, a 501 (c) 3, nonprofit organization with a mission to develop a system of interlinking greenway trails through metro Atlanta for commuting and recreating.
At about the same time, Sam Friedman and his biking buddies were getting back from a West Coast biking trip where they encountered beautiful off-road trails. They believed Atlanta should have similar amenities and met to discuss how they might play a role in building trails nearer home. The two groups met, and the rest is history. Sam assembled and chaired the PATH Board of Directors, and Ed and Pete became the first two PATH employees.
