How to hike/roll around your neighborhood.


Closed event to veterans from Boston & White River Junction VA Medical Centers.

Join our Sports Lead, Chris Werhane as he talks about important things you should know about hiking and rolling outdoors such as: how to get ready, where to go, trail etiquette, and various terrains. Chris will elaborate on the areas that are accessible for hikes, the cost of equipment, and the level of difficulties for hikes.

Researchers have found that there are important mental and physical health benefits to spending time outside. Anyone, but particularly someone living with the limitations of a disability, can benefit from the mood boost and other health effects of being in the fresh air. Just five minutes spent being active outside, causes significant improvements in self-esteem, mood, and depression. Studies have found that even an easy walk in a park or any natural area outdoors can reduce signs of depression in the brain. Sunlight is also proven to boost mood and reduce depression and anxiety. So let's get outdoors together!
