During June, Howard Hughes pledged to donate $1 for every mile walked, jogged or biked by its employees in the over 300 miles of nature trails in The Woodlands, Bridgeland and The Woodlands Hills. June is Great Outdoors Month, highlighting national trails.

Together, Howard Hughes team members covered nearly 1,600 miles along the winding hike-and-bike trails in each of the award-winning master planned communities. Howard Hughes rounded up the amount for a donation of $2,000 to the YMCA.

“The Woodlands and Bridgeland offer an unprecedented 28 percent of open, green space to embrace fresh air and and take in a bit of nature. The Woodlands Hills, still in its infancy, will feature 112 acres of open space. Our team stepped out to enjoy the 300-miles of pathways throughout these three award-winning communities in the Greater Houston area,” said Brandon Hinman, Senior Manager, Design and Development with Howard Hughes and Board Member of the YMCA of Greater Houston. “We chose to support the local YMCA as they embrace the health and wellness lifestyle that each of our communities promotes. They are truly a deserving and worthwhile cause.”

Through its HHCares program, a community-focused charitable initiative, Howard Hughes contributes and volunteers to over 180 local causes of nonprofit organizations each year.
