PPG Donates $5,000 to Recreation Unlimited to Support Development of Indian Run Trail

The PPG Industries Foundation has donated $5,000 to Recreation Unlimited, a nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities and health concerns through sports, recreation and education, for its efforts to develop an accessible environmental and historical trail honoring the Native Americans who lived in the local area.

"We are very pleased to have received support from PPG for development of the new trail," said Paul L. Huttlin, executive director and CEO of Recreation Unlimited. "The donation helped to fund the first phase of this trail."

Recreation Unlimited, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008, currently serves about 3,700 individuals with disabilities and health concerns representing up to 14 physical and developmental disability groups from 57 counties in Ohio and five surrounding states.

The Indian Run Trail it is developing will be an accessible environmental and historical trail honoring the Delaware Indians, or Lenape, who lived in the area. It will include interpretive signs and specific activities that teach visitors about the relationship between nature and the life activities of a Delaware Indian.

“PPG is strongly committed to supporting the communities where its employees work and live,” said Carl Johnson, North America director of refinish manufacturing, based at PPG’s automotive refinish paint manufacturing facility in Delaware, and a member of the Recreation Unlimited board of directors. “We are proud to support Recreation Unlimited in its efforts to make outdoor exploration accessible to individuals with disabilities and health concerns, and to teach these individuals about local history through these activities.”
