Volunteers said the problem began when Monongalia County condensed the committees overseeing the park into one.
Two Barbour County teachers are back in class after a week-long walk.
Nick Mayle and Marcus Johnson walked from Philippi to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio to raise money for the Barbour All-County Sports Organization, and their effort paid off.
At the end of the walk, the group was just a few hundred dollars short of the almost $35,000 it needs to keep middle school sports funded in Barbour County.
The group isn't resting, however.
It said it will continue to raise money to support those teams in future, too.
