Fitness trailhead dedicated to Bordoni in Ithaca

Fitness trailhead dedicated to Bordoni in Ithaca

Near a hundred people gathered at the Cayuga Waterfront Trail to honor a fallen Ithaca marine on this Veterans Day.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the official opening of the Chris Bordoni Fitness Trailhead, in honor of the Ithaca High grad who died from injuries suffered while serving in Afghanistan.

The trailhead consists of eight outdoor exercise machines.

Chris’ younger brother Casey expressed his gratitude for all the support he and his family has received since the day Corporal Bordoni suffered his eventual life-ending injuries.

Bordoni says Chris was a fitness enthusiast and there is no better way to honor him than to dedicate something he loved to the entire community.
