The centerpiece of this project is the development of a ½ mile JCH Memorial Walking Trail. This trail, funded in part by memorial gifts left to the JCH Foundation, will serve as a tribute to the visionaries of our JCH Wellness Center who were passionate about wellness on our campus. The walking trail will be available for use by our community members, staff and visitors.
