FitTrail Wellness Pop-Up

We have been having such a fun time with the FitTrail at Hamburg Park. Partnering with the wellness staff at the YMCA, we have been doing Wellness pop-overs to the park. We have our Wellness Director Alma Dhuyvetter swing over to the park to share wellness insight with families and residents using the trail. Alma has been able to speak with families about the importance of walking and how to get the most out of the families time on the FitTrail. She has also linked into how to bring healthy choices from the park to around town. Highlighting the Healthy Parking spots the Y installed at a local Walmart Super Store. The Healthy Parking spots offer a reminder of how to find wellness in your everyday errands. The Healthy Parking spots were made possible through a past NJHCN grant. Unfortunately, Franklin Borough has yet to make the decision on location for the FitTrail system. We are looking forward to seeing this come to fruition.
