Sylva and Cullowhee, NC – Spring has sprung and as we are all itching to get out of our houses and into the sun, Harris Regional Hospital invites everyone out for a Family Day on the Greenway. We are proud to partner with Western Carolina University through our Ascent Partnership in hosting this event.
Through The Ascent Partnership, Harris Regional Hospital, Swain Community Hospital, and WCU collaborate in training the next generation of health care workers, support athletics and the arts in communities in the region. We create opportunities for community engagement on wellness and expand local availability of needed health care services. This event is one of the ways students within the Partnership engage the community in wellness activities.
Date/Time – Family Day at the Greenway will take place April 17th from 3 pm – 5 pm at the Jackson County Greenway in Cullowhee, NC.
We invite everyone out to walk the Greenway and enjoy various activities located around the trail. Some of the events include rock painting, yard games, and an ecology scavenger hunt. Harris EMS, PT Solutions, and Harris Pediatrics will all have tents set up for park-goers to interact with and learn more about their services.
