A Mesabi Trail Rest Stop for Judy

With her health in decline, we think it might be a great time to honor Judy Beckers and her contribution to the Mesabi Trail, for which she was an early member of the effort to get it off the ground.

So to make our tribute a lasting one, we're teaming with the Regional Rail Authority to install an honorary bench--a little rest stop--within the Hibbing stretch of the Mesabi Trail. These have been installed before as memorials and we think mom will approve.

We're only asking for small donations from Judy's friends, family, cycling companions and others who know her smile and her selflessness toward others.

Please consider making a donation toward our effort and share a memory, or thought of Judy in your comments.

We plan on having the bench installed when weather allows--hoping for Spring 2021.
