The Mayor wants to keep Houston from being one of the fattest cities in America again. He’s sending out a challenge to you all to see if he can get you moving. Are you up for the challenge? Here’s the press release sent out by the Mayor’s office:
Mayor Bill White invites Houstonians to lace up their tennis shoes and join him for at least 15 minutes of exercise on International Challenge Day, May 23, and to report their results. The International Challenge Day is a competition that takes place simultaneously in different cities around the world. It requires groups, couples or individuals to record that they have exercised for 15 minutes or more on one given day. In 2006, there were 2,867 cities from 24 countries that participated in Challenge Day, and the City of Houston has been involved since 2005.
