Co-workers from Children's Hospital are raising funds to install a bench and tree in the Midtown Greenway, in memory of Joel Mason.
Joel was a St. Paul native and ICU nurse at Children's Minnesota Minneapolis campus. He was an avid cyclist who bicycle communted nearly every day from East St. Paul to South Minneapolis, via the Midtown Greenway.
He had a dream that one day the railroad bridge over the Mississippi would have a bike/pedestrian trail on it to connect the two cities and extend the bike trail that he loved. Any funds remaining or in excess of the fundraising goal will be used to support this effort by the Midtown Greenway Coalition to extend the Greenway over the river.
A time and date for a memorial service, bench unveiling, and tree planting will be sent to all donors in the spring of 2021. Donations are tax-deductible. Thank you for helping us celebrate and remember Joel.
