CUNY SPH hikes the Heights

June 18, 2019 | Press Releases & Announcements

CUNY SPH students, faculty, and staff participated in the 15th annual Hike the Heights, a community hike along the “Giraffe Path,” a trail that runs from the Cloisters to Central Park.

Hike the Heights is made possible by CLIMB (City Life Is Moving Bodies) a Northern Manhattan community-based initiative founded on the belief that safe parks and neighborhoods are essential to community health, and that all communities, regardless of socioeconomic background, are entitled to access to safe parks and neighborhoods.
