Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 Montco Trail Challenge!
Through partnership and community engagement, the Montco Trail Challenge had a successful third year in 2018 with over 1,700 participants and 343 dogs. Participants ranged in age from 2 months to 87 years and included individuals, families, and community groups from all parts of Montgomery County as well as Bucks, Philadelphia, Chester, Lehigh, and Delaware counties.
We received multiple stories describing how the Montco Trail Challenge either motivated participants to re-engage with physical activity or provided a way for families to explore and exercise together.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America. Fortunately, through lifestyle interventions such as physical activity, nutritional changes, and stress management, the risk of heart disease decreases. We look forward to bringing about another trail challenge to promote heart health through safe physical activity while connecting the community with local parks and trails.
