2006 TRAILS FOR HEALTH AWARD WINNERS
The award recognizes a community's commitment to improving access to trails and promoting their use and importance for increasing physical activity. The award is for commitment to long term change through community design, trail planning, heightened awareness of active community environments, physical activity promotion, and increased trail use:
Memorial Hospital Foundation - River Bluff Trail, Logansport, Indiana
Just over five years ago, there was a need for Memorial Hospital to help ensure the health of area residents. It was clear that a health crisis was looming, evidenced by the increasing poor health habits and physical health of the population. At the same time, a committee of Logansport Memorial Hospital employees was brainstorming ways of celebrating the hospital's 75th anniversary.
The team decided to emphasize the leadership's concerns for the community, to stress exercise as a path to a healthy life style and longevity and to insure the protection of community environments by developing a walking trail.
