GVG Health Walk Successful

One such effort was a health walk that was hosted last Saturday (27th April, 2013), in the famous Central Park in New York. It was organized by the Green Valley Global foundation which is headed by President Glennis Phoenix.

The annual walk, which is now in its third year,  started and finished on 110 Street and Central Park West with some participants walking the entire route while a few individuals effortlessly ran the 3 miles.

An official from the group said the event was held in support of the Green Valley Festival Committee, which will be honouring the of the Cayon community on Sunday May 12 2013, during a “Hats off to Our Seniors Luncheon” which will be held at the Bethesda Moravian Church in Cayon. This year’s health walk/run was also held with a view to promote healthy habits in the lives of the participants and their families.
