Fund Est. May 2004
The dream of a new Adams Memorial Hospital (AMH) and Life Fitness Trail had become a reality in July 2005.
The next phase of the Dream was the addition of an oncology center. There were 1000+ generous contributions and a single generous contribution that allowed the final phase of the building fundraiser and the construction of the AMH / Paul and Kathryn Strickler Cancer Institute.
The 3/4 mile-in-length AMH Life Fitness Trail surrounds the Adams Memorial Hospital property and connects to the River Green Way. The Life Fitness Trail offers four sections of life-time milestones and meditation gardens. These are:
(1) New Beginnings ~ In Memory of Bryan Miller (such as births, etc.)
(2) Special Occasions / Recognition ~ Sponsored by Bellmont H.S. Girls Basketball Program (such as engagement, marriage, anniversary, baptism, christening, dedication, etc.)
(3) Professional Achievements ~ In Memory of John Lingenfelter (such as graduation-high school, college, military service, opening of a new business, promotion at work, recognizing personnel for years of service, etc.)
(4) Memory Garden ~ In Memory of Carolyn Donaghy (in memory of, etc.)
Paver-bricks to line the fitness trail can be purchased for each of the four meditation gardens. Supporters can purchase a brick for each garden or all for the same garden.
