June 5, 2012 - Fitness expert and Covenant Health representative Missy Kane, in partnership with Legacy Parks Foundation and Knoxville Parks and Recreation, will kick off the "Get Out on Local Trails with Missy Kane" on Wednesday, June 6, at 8:45 a.m.

The walks will take place in various city, county, and state parks with this week's hike beginning at the new Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center located on Volunteer Landing next to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The Adventure Center is a one-stop shop with bike and kayak rentals, guides to help guests with all outdoor opportunities offered in Knoxville, and a store where recreation gear and apparel may be purchased.

All walks in the "Get Out on Local Trails with Missy Kane" series are free and open to the public; however, Kane will be accepting donations to benefit the Friends of Legacy Parks.

Through Kane (a melanoma survivor), Thompson Survival Center is also providing sunscreen in case participants forget their own. Hikers should be sure to bring along water and snacks to keep up their energy.

In addition to Missy Kane, officials with the City of Knoxville and Knox County Parks and Recreation departments will be joining the walks, depending on location.

Schedules, locations, and contact information for each hike may be viewed on the Outdoor Knoxville web site at http://www.outdoorknoxville.com/calendar/events.
