The City Council of Morganton and MFG North Carolina management team recently dedicated a new fitness trail featuring seven exercise stations on the Catawba River Greenway. The $15,000 fitness trail was funded by MFG North Carolina and installed by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department.

“The exercise stations are an example of MFG’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of our teammates and the Morganton community,” said Joe Wilk, SVP for MFG.
