Promoting Community Wellness: LEAP Trail

To date, more than 1,200 people have completed the Leadership Pensacola program.

In March 2013, Mike Nixon, Innisfree’s President of Hotel Operations, joined other local dignitaries in a groundbreaking celebration for Pensacola’s newest public fitness amenity. Innisfree is proudly contributed $25,000 to the three-mile long LEAP Trail.

The trail will be used by cyclists, joggers and walkers. Pets and strollers will also be welcome. It will feature 10 workout stations with illustrated instructions for circuit training. Families will also enjoy the LEAP trail. It will include playgrounds accessible to disabled children, as well picnic tables, park benches, waste receptacles, bike racks and pet waste stations.

The trail will begin near the Pensacola International Airport, run south down 12th Avenue through Roger Scott Athletic Complex down Summit Boulevard and across to Bayou Boulevard. Its location close to Innisfree’s new Hyatt Place Hotel means the trail will be a high quality, free fitness amenity for hotel guests.

The project is being spearheaded by Leadership Pensacola, a program operated by the Greater Pensacola Chamber with the goal of ensuring the community’s pool of talented leaders will be continually renewed.

To date, more than 1,200 people have completed the Leadership Pensacola program and have acquired the skills, passion and connections to work effectively as community trustees.
