St. Mary’s hosting community walk
HUNTINGTON — St. Mary’s Medical Center will host a community walk at noon Wednesday, Sept. 26 at St. Mary’s main campus, 2900 1st Ave. in Huntington, as part of the Greater Huntington Walks initiative.The walk will follow the one-mile campus walking trail. Participants should meet in the lobby of the medical center. All Huntington area residents are invited to attend. The mission of Greater Huntington Walks is for the Greater Huntington area to be viewed as a healthy and active community for people to live, work and visit. It aims to promote and enhance the health of people by encouraging walking and activity and working together to achieve a publicly stated goal.
Last month, GHW achieved its collective goal of all participants accumulating enough miles to walk to the moon. The initiative is now working to collect enough miles to return to Earth from the moon, or 238,900 miles, by the end of 2018.
