The Niagara Falls National Heritage Area (NFNHA) and Create a Healthier Niagara Falls Collaborative (CHNFC) are partnering together to host a 5K Wellness Walk at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center on Sunday, April 18 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. This walk offers an opportunity for members of the community to restore the connection with nature and each other, while improving their physical and mental health.
Designed to counteract the isolation and sedentary lifestyle many of us have experienced due to the pandemic, the walk will allow participants to adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines while enjoying a healthy activity together. Just the act of walking and talking with each other will help boost people’s spirits and build community support and reconnection after what has been a tough year for many.
The simple loop route will start at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center following the Niagara Gorge Trail to Niagara Falls State Park returning to the Heritage Center for completion.
