American Heart Association And UC Dedicate New Walking Path

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – Members of the American Heart Association were at Utica College today to dedicate a new walking path on the college’s campus.

The one and one third mile path allows walkers to stroll the sidewalks while supporting cardiovascular health. Adirondack Bank is also assisting the cause by helping purchase signs designating the walking route.

UC’s athletic director, David Fontaine, says walking is an excellent – and free – way to get in shape and stay active.

“I would encourage anybody in the community to come up and join our Utica College family and participate in the walking path here,” Fontaine said. “It’s a great opportunity for everybody to get together and take a proactive approach to being as heart healthy as possible.”

Kristen West, a member of Leadership Mohawk Valley and part of the team responsible for the new walking path, says Utica College provides a safe area where people can get out and exercise.

“The walking path is designated as a place where people can come with their families any time of year and any time of day,” West said.

Other dedicated walking areas include the paths through Utica’s Proctor Park, The Sculpture Garden at Griffiss Business and Technology Park and the village of Cooperstown.
