GENESEO – United Way of Livingston County is partnering up with the Young Leaders of Wegmans in Geneseo to collaborate on bringing new fitness stations to Highland Park as a way of promoting health and community.
The project is still in its design phase but they hope to bring six new exercise stations at three different locations that will be placed off of the edge of the cinder walking path.

“This is great way to for Wegmans and the United Way to promote community and a healthy lifestyle,” said Karen Rumfola, Director of United Way Livingston County. “Livingston County is the healthiest County in the State and this reinforces our dedication towards living a healthy lifestyle.”
Rumfola, along with United Way of Livingston County board member Josh Williams, described the plan in which they hope to improve on the park experience for all.
“We would like exercise stations for all physical abilities,” said Williams. “Not everyone can do a chin-up, so we are going to have a comfortable variety of exercises so that all can enjoy our wonderful village park.”
Dr. Jeremy Lee, from Lee Chiropractic and Physical Therapy will assist in the selection of the exercises to ensure a balanced selection.
“I think I speak for the room when I say we love the idea,” said Mayor Richard Hatheway. “We’ve tried to get something going since the park was there. For more than two years we’ve been wanting a grand reopening of the park and this would be the absolute perfect project.”
A tentative date of July 22, 2015 is set as the proposed construction day.
The next step is to meet with Village Officials develop a timeline, all of which will depend on the spring weather.
Rumfola also invited other volunteer organizations that might be interested in getting involved in the project to contact the United Way of Livingston County.
