Carey Gardner, Director of Development and Community Relations, says the hospital launched a pilot program back January and officially launched the program two months later in March.
He says the program is designed for walkers to achieve certain milestones.
Gardner notes that participants in the program have seen their efforts pay off.
Gardner says the hospital has already begun planning for next year.
