East Orange YMCA Takes A H.I.K.E For Healthy Living

Go Take A H.I.K.E.!

“Take a H.I.K.E.” will take on new meaning for the City of East Orange.  The East Orange YMCA’sEast Orange H.I.K.E. (Healthy Initiative to Keep Exercising)” will identify 10 to 30 historical landmarks in each of East Orange’s five Wards in celebration of the City of East Orange’s 150th Anniversary.ccThe landmarks will blaze a walking trail for the community to not only walk for healthy living, but for all to learn the history of our wonderful city.

This initiative is important to the the East Orange YMCA because helping people live healthier is fundamental to strengthening communities and being healthy means more than simply being physically active.  It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.  The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.   At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.
