PRESCOTT, AZ. Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance (PMBA), announced today that it completed its fundraising campaign to upgrade the pump track at Granite Creek Park in time to start construction before the summer begins.

Cash and in-kind donations were made by the City of Prescott, local non-profits, local businesses, and individuals from the community adding up to total of $53,350 exceeding the initial goal. Additional funds raised will be applied towards unexpected construction costs, if any. The balance will be used for on-going maintenance.

Sponsors will be acknowledged on PMBA’s website and by having their name permanently inscribed on a metal sign at the pump track based on their sponsorship level.
