Jackson County Plan4Health promotes physical activity in Carbondale with new walking path

JACKSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - Members of the Jackson County Healthy Communities Coalition are partnering to promote physical activity by encouraging community members to use the new multi-use path located in Carbondale, Illinois in front of the University Mall.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 30 at 1 p.m.

The goal of the Jackson County Plan4Health initiative is to support coalition efforts to reshape policies, systems and spaces to encourage healthy behaviors.

The multi-use path allows the community to recreate exercises and commute to many shopping sites and eateries in the Carbondale area.
