CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-  Rivermont Elementary held a groundbreaking for their fitness trail project.  Rivermont was awarded $14,000 through a Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga grant to build a walking/jogging track.

The fitness trail will be built around the lower playground area and include an asphalt walking/jogging track with fitness stations built around the perimeter.  The stations will be based on the Presidential Fitness Challenge and will provide students and the community the opportunity to practice curl-ups, pull-ups, shuttle run, and flexibility.

County Commissioner Jim Fields, Home Depot, Rivermont Presbyterian Church, the Enclave Community Association are all partnering with Rivermont and the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga on the project.
