Healthy Parks, Healthy People Returns to National Seashore

WELLFLEET – Cape Cod National Seashore and Cape Cod Healthcare have announced the fourth season of Healthy Parks, Healthy People.

The partnership initiative, designed to benefit both Cape Cod residents and visitors, is a walking program to promote health and wellness.

The program will begin on June 4th at Cape Cod National Seashore and will feature Cape Cod Healthcare physicians, nurses, and staff working with park rangers to help motivate participants to increase movement through enjoyment of the outdoors – and improve their health in the process.

“Healthy Parks, Healthy People is a wonderful way for Cape Cod Healthcare physicians and clinicians to work with people on a wellness initiative in the beauty of the outdoors on Cape Cod,” said Michael Lauf, President and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare.

“We are so fortunate to have this national treasure of Cape Cod National Seashore in our backyard, and are grateful for this amazing partnership to improve the health of our community.”

National Park Rangers will be on hand as well to assist with guiding walkers and educating participants about the five trails included in the program.

Healthy Parks, Healthy People is a movement adopted by the National Park Service as part of its centennial anniversary in 2016 with the goal of motivating visitors and residents, alike, to get outdoors and exercise while also walking away stress and worry.
