GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - This weekend, Darryl Haley, former New England Patriot, Ironman triathlete and world-renowned fitness trainer, joined Grand Canyon National Park's Diversity Council in celebrating Black History Month and enjoying the Grand Canyon as a place to have fun, learn something and get healthy at the same time.

Last Friday, Haley joined an hour-long, ranger-led walk along the Rim Trail.

Through his experiences at Grand Canyon, Haley, a health and fitness enthusiast who hosts Howard University Radio (WHUR) Fitness Friday on the Steve Harvey Morning Show, hopes to show that parks are places diverse audiences can and should enjoy, and that there are a wide range of opportunities for people of varying fitness levels to experience and recreate in their national parks.

Black History Month is celebrated each year in February and commemorates the lives and accomplishments of African Americans. The National Park Service's "Healthy Parks Healthy People" program promotes the fact that all parks are cornerstones of health for people.
