Ministry Health Care Supports Great Headwaters Trails

(EAGLE RIVER, WI) – Ministry Medical Group in Eagle River, and Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital, recently contributed $500 to support Great Headwaters Trails (GHT). GHT exists to create a 40 mile system of family-friendly community walking and biking trails for eastern Vilas County. The Great Headwaters Trails board is committed to Goal 2020 – having the whole system in place by the end of the decade.

GHT is also committed to working with the county, all the municipalities, trail organizations and other service and business groups in the area to find ways that the trail development plans can be as beneficial as possible to everyone.

“The contribution from Ministry Health Care will support our efforts to construct Great Headwaters Trails,” said Gary Meister, GHT board member. “Our ultimate goal is to create a trail system which members of our community, and visitors, can utilize to stay active, and also to enjoy the beautiful scenery in our region.”

“We are dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and the opportunity to assist Great Headwaters Trails in their efforts fits in with our mission at Ministry Health Care,” said Elmer Linboom, Family Practice Physician, Ministry Medical Group in Eagle River. “We look forward to supporting GHT throughout their goal of completing the trail system.”

GHT is an all-volunteer organization and is always looking for energetic people with skills in engineering, law, marketing, finance, and other important areas. Over 20 people are working to bring the GHT System to eastern Vilas County.
