NORWICH – On Saturday, the Chenango Health Network welcomes family, friends, children and pets to the Chenango Greenway Trail to help kick off “Walk Healthy Chenango,” a three-month program meant to inspire healthy, walking routines.
As incentives to take part in the campaign, participants will receive a walking log to record the number of minutes spent walking and information on local seasonal trails. In addition, those who successfully complete and submit their log at the conclusion of the campaign will receive a prize and any who reach their walking goal will be entered into an age-appropriate drawing for an additional prize.
Due to the efforts of the Headwaters Youth Conservation Corps (HYCC) and Americorps, local residents and participants will enjoy a new and improved Greenway Trail. Throughout the summer, members of Americorps and the HYCC have been erecting signs, making trail improvements, installing stone steps in particularly difficult areas and putting up trail markers, all while maintaining the Greenway Trail.
