St. Luke’s University Health Network partnered with the Panther Valley School District to hold their annual ‘Get Your Tail on the Trail’ kick-off event on August 17, 2015 at the Panther Valley Stadium in Lansford.
About 50 people participated in the healthy event.
“The event was held to encourage people of all ages and all activity levels to get outdoors and get active by walking, running or biking,” said Bill Moyer, President, St. Luke’s Hospital – Miner Campus. “This also served as an opportunity to walk with your community while gaining health benefits every step of the way.”
Volunteers said that Panther Valley Track is open to the public daily, from dawn to dusk at no charge. The Panther Valley track is located on Route 209 in Lansford, less than one and a half miles from St. Luke’s Miners Campus.
Organizers mentioned the importance of staying hydrated as you get out and get active, stating to take in 8-16 ounces of water 20-25 minutes before your activity, and always sip water during your workout.
