Since suffering from a heart attack earlier this year, Macon County resident Patrick Jenkins found himself turning to the Little Tennessee Greenway to help speed his recovery. Jenkins, who has lived in Macon County for most of his life, sought to improve his health and to get back on track serving his community.
Jenkins, who is better known in the community as the local Farm Bureau agent who braves the cold for the annual Cold For A Cause event to raise donations for CareNet, had a health scare after suffering from a heart attack. He quickly bounced back, utilizing the greenway to stay active and build his strength back up. But while along the Greenway during his recovery, he noticed that the park had succumbed to some wear and tear and could use some TLC to shine like new again.
