N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Central Valley Health (CVH) of Stutsman and Logan county has received a 2016 grant for America Walks and Every Body Walk.
America Walks is a national advocacy organization that promotes walking and walk-able communities. CVH announced Thursday that funded projects will increase walking and the benefits of walking along with working to increase the number of people walking and working. Central Valley was selected from over 800 applicants and is one of 22 projects that will be supported in 2017.
“Central Valley Health District is striving to improve the walk-ability of Jamestown, North Dakota. For our project, we will be purchasing signs to be placed at existing walking trails,” they stated in a release. “The signage will match our downtown walking trail called Get Fit & Explore. By marking the trails, we predict an increase in the amount of people walking. Because of the harsh North Dakota winters, we plan to place signs at indoor walking spaces including the Civic Center and the newly built Two Rivers Activity Center. Every Body Walk! is a wonderful opportunity to create a culture of walking in the Jamestown community.”
