In partnership with the City of Syracuse, Onondaga County, Syracuse University and the Fitness Inclusion Network, a new Monday Mile walking trail will be introduced during ceremonies at Sunnycrest Park on Monday, June 15th at 11:30 a.m.
This kicks off our summer program to promote physical fitness by walking. The Monday Mile initiative began in 2012 and to date there are 17 marked one-mile walking trails across Onondaga County, many in the city and county parks. This summer, the community will have a chance to get active with the Monday Mile Parks Passport Summer Challenge. Participants can pick up a passport listing all the route locations, set a goal to be more active, join in group walks or go it on their own and can earn prizes for meeting their fitness goals.
Representatives from the City of Syracuse Department of Parks and Recreation, Syracuse University’s Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion and the Fitness Inclusion Network will speak briefly about this collaborative effort to improve the health of the community through physical activity and will introduce the newest Monday Mile route in Sunnycrest Park.
