First, thank you to every one that participated in making this HIKE a huge success. We had over 100 people come out and participate in our inaugural HIKE. Some comments that were made were, “nice route”, “beautiful day”, “this was fun”, “when is the next one?”, “How can I participate?” After speaking to a few of our collaborators, we would like to propose having the Annual HIKE be the kick off to “A Walk in the Park” summer series. We will walk in a different park each month starting in July. We will also ask the City Council Representative for that park to join us with their constituents as a Healthy Initiative to Keep Exercising around our city.
As you can see from the pictures, we started out with a Zumba warm up and then walked around our great city. Our Healthy Initiative to Keep Exercising brought out our collaborators, volunteers, our young and our seniors. The Mayor of our city and his family led the way on this momentous event.
