Board “Walk” Your Way to Wellness with St. Catherine of Siena

As the brutal winter season becomes a happy and distant memory for Long Islanders—comes the warmth of spring and summer, and now is the time to grab your gear and hit the beach! And when you grab your beach gear, don’t forget your sneakers.

Starting May 6th, health care professionals from St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center will be on the boardwalk at Sunken Meadow State Park encouraging fellow Long Islanders to spring into physical fitness. Representatives will be on the boardwalk throughout the spring and summer months, June 3rd, July 1st. August 5th and September 4th. Bring the entire family and walk, jog, run or stroll—speak to health care professionals and pick up free fitness related giveaways.

 The Board “Walk” Your Way to Wellness community outreach program is an initiative in response to the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council’s Long Island Health Collaborative (LIHC). The LIHC represents the partnership of 24 hospitals on Long Island, dozens of community-based organizations, schools and colleges , and the two county health departments—all joined together to connect Long Islanders to better health. Physical activity is just one of the components of the collaborative work.
