Trails Make Our Community Safer and Healthier
Trails for walking and exercise promote physical activity and boost personal health. According to the Surgeon General, 40% of adults do not engage in leisure-time physical activity. In Warrick County, 32% of the population is obese. Physical activity helps control weight, it lowers the risk for heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, and it can reduce depression and anxiety.
One of my personal objectives is to try to get mothers pushing strollers and people jogging and people riding bikes off shoulders of the roadways and onto paths, in an environment that encourages exercise, health, and safety.Howard Nevins
