CDG, Wellness Center unveil Exercise Trail

Members of the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Community Development Group (CDG) and Mount Vernon Parks & Rec were on hand to unveil the City’s new Exercise Trail outside the Lester Buresh Family Community Wellness Center this past week.

The $20,000 needed for the equipment was raised in part through last year’s Cold Turkey fundraising project sponsored by the Reichardt Family Foundation and Above + Beyond Cancer.

Monies raised throughout the three-month smoking cessation program went to two Mount Vernon community projects: Hilltop Pocket Park (which opened earlier this year) in Uptown Mount Vernon, and the Exercise Trail.
