Get Movin' with Oscar G

This morning several hundred Las Vegans joined our beloved Mayor, Oscar Goodman for a walk. This morning's 2.5 mile walk kicked off the Mayor's Healthy Lifestyle Initiative.

Currently, Las Vegas is ranked the 42nd healthiest city to live in. ( I'm not sure about these rankings, remember just 2 weeks ago Las Vegas was the number 1 fattest city in America!)

Mayor Goodman's Healthy Lifestyle Initiative 3 point plan is to Get Smart, Get Up and Get Out. He wants to educate Las Vegans about proper diets and exercise. He wants Las Vegans to use and enojy our city's parks and recreation areas to help achieve their fitness goals.

Today's event was held at Kellog Zaher Park. The walk started at promptly at 8:00 am, before the temperature gets out of hand. The route included several water break stations for participants and their 4 legged friends as well.
