Overview of Outdoor Idea


HEALTHY Armstrong, a youth obesity prevention project will partner with the Armstrong Rails to Trails to provide a variety of events such as hiking and bicycling. These events will promote increased physical activity by community members and promote awareness and use of the Armstrong Trail.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

Part of the $5,000 would be used by the Armstrong Trail Association to expand the trail. Specifically, funds would be used for the tar and chipping projects to extend the trail north along the Allegheny River. The other portion of the $5,000 would be used by HEALTHY Armstrong to promote the hike and bike events that utilize the trail. Promotion of these events would introduce community members to the scenic beauty of the newly expanded portions of the trail. It is hoped that through these events, more community members will actively use the resource of the trail.

I have worked with HEALTHY Armstrong for quite a while now, and what they accomplished is just incredible! This organization deserves this grant, in pursuit of combating childhood obesity.
