Reecer co-founded and led a nonprofit to design and build a state-of-the-art bicycle and pedestrian trails system in Fort Wayne and Allen County, Ind. Following the tragic death of a dear friend and cyclist in 2001, Reecer co-founded Aboite New Trails (now Fort Wayne Trails), raised $13 million, built over 20 miles of new trails, lobbied the city of Fort Wayne to hire a manager position and partnered with the public sector to make Fort Wayne safer, pedestrian friendly and economically viable. Her success has inspired similar initiatives throughout the state.
