Capital Area Greenbelt Association – Keeping it Green!

Penbrook Walk With a Doc (WWAD) is promoting virtual WWAD events starting July 20, 2020. We are coordinating with the Capital Area Greenbelt Association’s 2020 “Tour de Belt” event. This year the Capital Area Greenbelt Assocation (CAGA) is welcoming both walkers and bicyclists to walk or cycle the entire 20 miles of Greenbelt over a twenty-day period from July 20 to August 8, 2020.

If you register at http://caga.org/ for the Tour de Belt by July 7, 2020, you get a Tour de Belt commemorative t-shirt, a chance to win prizes, and CAGA membership for the rest of this year. See http://caga.org/tour-de-belt/ for details and registration.

Penbrook WWAD participants that register for the Tour de Belt can go to the Fort Hunter Park barn to get their shirt, a map, etc, starting at 5:00 PM on Monday July 20. Those that wish to walk with us that evening should then report to the north parking lot of Wildwood Park at 6:30PM. The north parking lot is on Industrial Road near Linglestown Road. We plan to walk the two mile section of the Greenbelt which is in Wildwood Park. Walkers can arrange with each other to leave cars to shuttle each other back to the north parking lot. Or for those that prefer, you could walk back to the starting point which is a three mile loop.

We must maintain social distancing and wear masks following CDC and PA requirements for our walks.

We will have a second walk day on Saturday August 1 at 10:00 AM and will meet at Penbrook Community Park. We will walk to Derry Street in Paxtang and return to Penbrook. The round trip is about two miles.

Saturday August 8 we will meet at Penbrook Community Park at 8:30 AM and walk to Reservoir Park and back to Community Park. Again, the round trip is about two miles. Following our walk, those that are interested can go to Fort Hunter Park for the ‘Grand Finale’ of CAGA Tour de Belt which will be held from 8:30AM until noon.

If you want to learn more about the health benefits of walking from medical professionals, visit the Walk With a Doc website https://walkwithadoc.org/join-a-walk/virtual-walk-with-a-doc-events/. There are short videos from doctors that you can view.

We encourage everyone to walk on other days and try to complete the entire Greenbelt during this 20 day period. Since walking with someone is often more fun, you may want to coordinate these other walks with a friend or family member.

You can donate to the Greenbelt by shopping on Amazon’s website. Consider donating to the Greenbelt using Amazon Smile.For more information, see our Donation page.
