The Kellogg Alumni Club of New York

invites you to participate in a


Lifestyle, Health & Fitness Hike

Please join us for a hike along Claudius Smith's Rock Loop in Rockland County. Throughout the excursion, you'll have an opportunity to engage with discussion leaders who can raise awareness and answer questions about life issues that challenge modern professionals. Group leaders will be:

Marina de la Torre

DISCUSSION LEADER

Marina de la Torre (KSM'06) is a health & wellness coach and the founder of healthfulQuest™. A graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she blends nutrition theory with practical and effective coaching techniques to help clients become physically fit and emotionally balanced. To learn more about Marina, click here.

Hermann Mazard

HIKE LEADER

Hermann Mazard (KSM'96) is an avid hiker, cyclist and outsdoorsman. A former Boy Scout and member of numerous outdoor clubs, he is familiar with the trails at Harriman State Park. This is his solo-leading debut for a hiking expedition but what he lacks in experience, he more than makes up for in enthusiasm. To learn more about Hermann, click here.

The cost to attend is $69 ($49 hike only, no transportation) for tickets purchased by Thursday, June 7th. The fee increases by $15 for tickets purchased within three (3) days of the trip. Early purchase is encouraged and appreciated. Maximum: 40 people.
