Guthrie is one of four recipients of a WalkWorks grant from Pitt Public Health. Joining the network this fall are Guthrie, the City of Washington in Washington County, Mt. Union Borough in Huntingdon County, and Windber Borough in Somerset County.
The grant and accompanying program is designed to expand opportunities for physical activity in the built environment. As the project moves forward, Guthrie will engage community members to assist with identifying a one to two mile walking route which will be used by walking groups. WalkWorks will provide technical assistance, promotional materials and signage to each community partner. The partners will also be encouraged to use Walker Tracker, a web-based tracking tool for logging steps that is open for public registration at https://pawalkworks.walkertracker.com/. Watch for more details about this exciting project as the process moves forward in the spring.
