When you register for your Healthy Parks, Healthy People PASSPORT, when you arrive at designated trailheads for your blood pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI) readings and when you sign up for special walking tours, you will be meeting and working with a dedicated medical team from Cape Cod Healthcare this summer and fall.

The team will be staffing the base camp and mobile camps, help register you for the walking programs, will track your progress, evaluate your performance and provide advice and fitness information.


Throughout the summer and fall, the Cape Cod Healthcare team will lead walks and host talks.

The walks and talks will focus on fitness, nutrition and their health benefits. You will be encouraged to ask questions of the team. It’s a great opportunity to get to know them one-on-one.

They also will be at the trailheads on a scheduled basis to certify your Healthy Parks, Healthy People PASSPORT.

Join a group or arrange a custom walk.
