Fort Healthcare and the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation are pleased to announce the opening of the Community Wellness Walking Path at Jansen’s Banquet Hall, 1245 Whitewater Avenue in Fort Atkinson. This collaboration with Jansen’s will be staffed by volunteers and will offer a safe walking environment during these winter months.
The Walking Path will be available from Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to Noon, through April 3, 2021. Guests are kindly asked to be masked appropriately at all times, keep an appropriate distance from other participants, and change into dry shoes upon arrival.
In the event of inclement weather, the Walking Path will follow the lead of the Fort Atkinson School District and will close if schools are closed or delayed. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, it is asked you please stay home.
Additionally, Fort Healthcare and the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation would like to extend their gratitude to everyone who contributed to the COVID-19 Relief Fund, a portion of which is being used to fund this project. The organizations would also like to thank Connie Jansen for opening up her business to the community, as well as the Fort Atkinson Park and Rec Department for use of some of their equipment, and Fort Atkinson resident Bob Cheek for helping coordinate volunteers.
