Hundreds of folks laced up their sneakers to take part in Mayor Karl Dean’s “Walk 100 Miles with Nashville” campaign Tuesday morning.
The new walking movement is a follow-up to the highly successful “Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor” initiative.
Mayor Dean is encouraging all Nashvillians to create or join a walking group and then motivate each other to walk 100 miles during the summer of 2014.
Tuesday’s launch walk kicked-off campaign was held in conjunction with Nashville Downtown Partnership at Fifth Third Plaza.
Following a brief program, Mayor Dean led a 15-minute walk around downtown.
After the walk, participants got to enjoy a healthy, complimentary lunch hosted by Frothy Monkey.
