“I am telling everyone about the Glow… my family all agreed it was one of the best things we did together all summer.” Rachel R.



While fundraising is not required, we hope you will ask your friends, family members, and others to support the Greenway by sponsoring your bike ride.

There are SO many people who love the Greenway and want to help support it — people tell us every year they didn’t know how easy it would be to raise funds!

To help make it easy, we provide all of our participants with sample emails, a personal fundraising page for online donations, and staff to provide guidance and fundraising support.

Online fundraising is available OR you can mail donations to:

Midtown Greenway Coalition
2834 10th Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55407

You can also make your own tax-deductible donation!
