Spruce Up Your Stroll

The community wellness initiative, Spruce Up Your Stroll, aims to make needed improvements to the walking trail at UPMC Carlisle.

The walking trail at UPMC Carlisle has always been the place for staff, patients, and community members to escape reality for a short while and enjoy the quiet of nature. UPMC Pinnacle Foundation Major Gifts Officer Michelle Loomis, who serves UPMC Carlisle and their staff, soon came to realize there was a need in her community she could address. The trail, while calm and simple, was in dire need of some sprucing up. As such, Spruce Up Your Stroll, a community wellness initiative aiming to enhance the patient, staff, and overall community experience at UPMC Carlisle was born.

The UPMC Pinnacle Foundation believes in approaching this challenge from the ground up – literally. Individual, group and business donations will help create a beautiful, and meaningful, outdoor space lined with trees, fitness stations, benches, birdhouses, squirrel feeders and more.
