Put on your walking shoes

Crossville Mayor J.H. Graham III led the way during the kick-off for the Cumberland County Health Department's first Walks-A-Lot Program on Monday afternoon. Nearly 100 participants from ages 3 to 70 joined him for the event, which included a walk around the Kmart parking lot. During the opening rally, the mayor proclaimed April 5-9 as National Public Health Week in Crossville to encourage citizens to participate in the program and make lifestyle changes to improve their overall health. The Walks-A-Lot Program runs through May 3. More than 150 individuals have registered and will be keeping track of physical activity on exercise logs during the month to be eligible for a prize drawing on May 10, said Ruth Lucas, health educator with the Cumberland County Health Department.
