To spread the giving spirit across the country, 90 ABC stations across the United States were given $10,000 each to launch Big Give movements in their own communities. Everyone did an amazing job, but one city went above and beyond! The residents of Fort Wayne, Indiana, decided to raise money to build 40 miles of walking and bike trails—and they gave in a big way.
After five weeks of fundraising, thousands of residents—including members of the Indianapolis Colts football team—gathered to hear the grand total. In all, the city raised more than $1.2 million!
