Walking two miles a day is Mayor Tyler's goal for Shreveporters in "Walkin' to New Orleans" fitness program
Walking two miles a day from now until Oct 23 is what Mayor Ollie Tyler is recommending for the citizens in a new fitness initiative called Walkin' to New Orleans. Can the citizenry of this Louisiana city each walk a distance of 350 miles between now and October 23rd? That would be the equivalent of walking from Shreveport to New Orleans.
The city's 2015 Health and Wellness Program features downtown walking paths that will aid the process. Maps of the walking paths can be found at www.shreveportla.gov/GetFit.
Participants will be offered a series of walks, fitness challenges and cook-outs designed to bolster the walking. For more information or to sign up: 318-673-5150.
