Walking Trails Open at Four Elementary Schools

 

The recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for the walking trail at Bowie Elementary also signified the official opening of walking trails at Carver, Harlem and Lamar elementaries. Thanks to Be Well Baytown, an initiative of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, sponsored by ExxonMobil, the trails will be available during the day to students, but they will also will be open on weekdays after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends to the community.

 

The walking trails are one of the projects to encourage physical activity in the schools as well as in the community. The four schools that received walking trails also piloted the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program, hosting CATCH Family Nights for students and families, targeting multiple aspects of the school environment: the classroom, Child Nutrition Services, physical education, parents and the broader school community.

 

“We’re excited about our partnership to help mobilize the community and improve their health,” said Priscila Garza, Healthy Community School Coordinator.
