BlueCross BlueShield NC recently gifted the city $550,000 for construction of the section of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail from Wade Park to John D. Barry Drive and $5,000 for sponsorship of the Run, Ride & Roll event. When the City Council officially accepted the gift on Oct. 16, the 15-mile trail became fully funded.
Wilmington was one of only three North Carolina cities selected to receive funds from BCBSNC for this type of project.
