St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) are partnering to bring the community a family fun initiative — get off the couch and get active!
By linking SLUHN healthy lifestyle expertise with the recreational and heritage leadership of D&L, members of our community can participate in scheduled challenges on their way to achieving their personal fitness goals.
Using SLUHN and D&L’s commitment to our community, our goal is to connect people to the outstanding opportunities along the D&L Trail while increasing health awareness and improving the health status of the community. This partnership will provide individuals and families with nutrition and exercise programs which create and promote a culture of personal wellness and a sense of community.
Take the 165 Mile Challenge
Congratulations! There were 670 Get Your Tail on the Trail participants who completed the 30/30 Winter Mini-Challenge. A new Get Your Tail on the Trail carabineer keychain will arrive in your mailbox soon. For those who logged 90 miles in 30 days, a brand new fleece headband is coming your way!
As March 2 marked the end of the 2015 30/30 Winter Mini-Challenge, we will not be sending milestone prizes for any miles tracked after March 2, 2015. However, you are encouraged to use the Trail Tracker to keep track of your miles as you continue to achieve your personal fitness goals.
Stay tuned for details on the next 165 Mile Challenge.
