Prescribing Exercise is Good Medicine.
St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) are partnering to bring the community a family fun initiative — get off the couch and get active!
Prescribe “Get Your Tail on the Trail” and connect your patients to the outstanding opportunities along the D&L Trail while increasing health awareness and improving the health of our community. The SLUHN/D&L partnership provides individuals and families with nutrition and exercise programs that create and promote a culture of personal wellness and a sense of community.
165 Mile Spring Challenge
Doesn’t matter if your patient is 15 or 85, obese or diabetic, physically fit or a couch potato, this challenge is for everyone. Get ‘em outdoors and get ‘em active and exploring nature by walking, running, or biking the D&L Trail, 165 total miles of natural beauty in our own backyard. They can log their miles via the Trail Tracker and receive FREE PRIZES as they achieve their milestone goals.
Doctors, get your patients moving together and building a healthier community… one mile at a time.
