We believe in making “the whole health of you” a priority! While exploring this idea we began to imagine a Wellness Walking Trail, thoughtfully constructed for our sprawling campus. As our healthcare providers, staff, patients and their family’s make their way through the various areas of the path, spaces for exercise, meditation, respite and reflection will become a part of the healing experience.
“When people are exposed to the natural environment and natural features, they tend to have a reduced stress response. When you are out in nature you have lower blood pressure, better heart rate variability, better mood.”
— Lisa Nisbet,Trent University, Canada
Interested in helping? Consider a gift!
Support one of four pathways that make up the Wellness Walking Trail, each representing different states of being by design: tranquility, activity, socialization, and contemplation.
Contribute to build a unique feature along the path. A children’s corner, butterfly garden, music gazebo, exercise row, or one of so many ideas to capture the imagination of the walker as they make their way along the pathway.
Bring your vision to the viewer through a statue or display to add interest and meaning along the walk.
Activity Station, Honorarium Benches and Milestone Pavers
Recognize a loved one through this display on the pathway, featuring a name.
YOUR GIFTS WILL MAKE THIS VISION A REALITY
Thank you for considering this exciting opportunity. We are confident that our staff and patients and their families will be thrilled to watch the current areas transform into an inspiring place where they can visit and be rejuvenated. We know it will impact their work-life and their healing during most critical times.
