Gorsuch Fitness Trail is Open
Thursday, August 29, 2019
Zanesville, Ohio (Aug. 29, 2019) – The Gorsuch Fitness Trail on the Genesis Hospital campus is now open. A grand re-opening celebration will be held Thursday, Sept. 19. The festivities start at 12:15 p.m. with a ribbon cutting near Genesis Behavioral Health. The event is free and open to the community. There will be healthy snacks available at the trail’s gazebo across from the Cancer Care Center.
The revitalized trail was funded by Genesis Volunteers. “The Genesis Volunteers wanted to invest in the health of our community, and upgrading the trail was a wonderful project that everyone in the community can benefit from,” said Jerry Nolder, executive director, Genesis Volunteers and the Genesis HealthCare Foundation. “The one-mile scenic trail is a popular place for community members to exercise. During nice weather about 100 to 150 walkers and runners use the trail daily,” Nolder said. The all-weather trail now has three rubberized layers for a more comfortable walking experience.
