“As a not-for-profit healthcare system, our mission is literally to give back to the community, to help improve health and wellness in our community,” Marshall said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “That’s our goal, to get people out and get people active and really enjoy this amazing facility. The Newfield Foundation donated 1.5 million towards this project and I think it turned out really well. I hope you love it.”

Marshall thanked the many sponsors and individuals who helped make the project a success.
