Take a Hike Newton planning Friday event
Placeholder Image

Take a Hike Newton is a non-profit organization for those within the community who want to start living a more healthy life, but also to enjoy the fun that hiking has to offer. These hikes have been known,for shedding weight while cleaning the environment at the same time. Matchbook Pr + Media’s CEO, Taylor Owenby, lost a significant amount of weight, and it started from hiking. Matchbook is now affiliated with Take a Hike Newton.        

The group is holding an event open to all in the community on Dec. 2 at the Charlie Elliot Wildlife Center from 8 a.m. to noon.

However, anybody who would like to stay longer is more than welcome. Owenby said, “I would encourage everyone in Newton County to Take A Hike and get well.” For more information, please contact Owenby at We hope to see everyone out bright and early, ready to clean and hike the trails away.
