Healthy Savannah and the YMCA to Celebrate Two-Year Milestone With Healthy Walk on Truman Linear Park Trail March 22

March 7, 2022 – What started as a simple way to get out of the house at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic is gearing up for a big milestone.

Healthy Walk, a grass-roots initiative to explore Savannah area trails and walkways, will celebrate its two-year anniversary on Tuesday, March 22. Healthy Savannah and the YMCA of Coastal Georgia are inviting the public to join them at 7:30 a.m. for a walk on the Truman Linear Park Trail.

As administrators of the five-year, $3.4 million grant called Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH), the organizations are using the funds to foster sustainable health equity among Black residents in low-wealth neighborhoods by increasing the availability of high-quality nutrition; promoting physical activity through creating greater access to safe places to walk, run, bike and play; and encouraging stronger connections between people and the healthcare providers who serve them.
