Hike It!

Hike It!

 

Is running outside of your comfort zone? Try hiking! 

Carolinas HealthCare System Stanly has partnered with Morrow Mountain State Park to provide this exciting opportunity. There will be a hike every Saturday morning from January 13 through February 24 to give you the opportunity to get physically active in a different way!

These sessions are not races, just hikes. Please wear appropriate shoes and clothing as it will be cool in January and February. You are also welcome to bring healthy snacks and water on the trail.

Every hiking session will begin at 9:00 a.m. Come by yourself, with a friend, family, or bring a whole group to enjoy the chance to get away from technology while being physically active. Sign up below for these FREE sessions today!
