Proceeds to Benefit PARCOURSE
The proceeds from the tournament will be used for the renovation of the PARCOURSE adjacent to Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet. After thirty years, the overall site is in disrepair. Historically, the course has been used by Lakeland therapists and their rehab patients, the Watervliet sports teams, the physical education classes at the Watervliet Middle and High Schools, and any senior resident who wanted to take advantage of this fitness area.
The new PARCOURSE will be redesigned with two (2) quarter-mile asphalt loops to accommodate individuals who may use wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids. Potentially, along each loop there will be four pods. Each pod will include different types of professional grade exercise equipment that offer degrees of difficulty for all fitness levels, and will be open seven days a week, free of charge.
