Organized Walks to Utilize the Port Jervis Fitness Loop
Beginning Monday, April 21 Bon Secours Community Hospital, 160 East Main Street, will launch “Get Fit Port Jervis,” a community walking initiative created by the hospital and the Bon Secours Community Hospital Physical Rehabilitation Department.
Karen Little, MSPT, clinical coordinator Bon Secours Community Hospital Rehabilitation Services along with guest members of the medical staff will lead organized walks utilizing the Port Jervis Fitness Loop, which was created last year in a partnership between Bon Secours Community Hospital, the City of Port Jervis and the Orange County Health Department.
From April 21 to October 17, there will be two guided walks each week on Mondays and Fridays.
Participants can join at any time and they should meet in the Bon Secours Community Hospital’s parking lot facing East Main Street. Check in time is 11:50 a.m. and the walk begins promptly at 12:00 noon.
The Fitness Loop, a designated Orange County Trail, is marked every ¼ mile by oval white signs. The entire loop is 2.25 miles long, and continues down East Main Street to Jersey Avenue, down Jersey Avenue to Pike Street, up Pike Street to East Main Street, and past Bon Secours Community Hospital. Walkers can start and finish their walks at any point along the way.
Each Participant is required to complete a registration form and waiver. And every walker will receive a “Get Fit Port Jervis” participant card, a program tee shirt and monthly incentive gifts.
