Vermont Mountain Day Hike
Many of the programs we develop or support come out of our statewide community advisory boards. These groups of committed health-minded Vermonters support health promotion and education in the areas of the state in which they live. One such long-standing celebration spearheaded by our Windham County Community Advisory Board is our annual Mountain Day, which started in 2000. Each year, hundreds of Vermonters convene to hike up Mt. Wantastiquet, near Brattleboro. The first 100 attendees receive a free Mountain Day T-shirt and a healthy lunch.
In 2014, we held our first ever Mountain Day at Mt. Philo in Charlotte. We hosted a bluegrass band at Mt. Philo as well.
