Mayor Invites Community to Monthly Walks
Mayor Cindy Rosenthal is inviting Normanites of all ages to join her on monthly community walks starting next week. The Walk ‘N Talk with the Mayor series will highlight different walking areas around Norman each month. The walks throughout the series are family-friendly, free and open to the public.
The first walk will be held Saturday, August 23rd, 9:00 a.m. on the University of Oklahoma campus. Walkers will meet in front of Evans Hall located at the South end of the North Oval for a walking tour of campus. All campus parking lots are open to the public during the weekend.
In 2006, 21 percent of Norman residents had not participated in any sort of physical activity outside of work during the course of a typical month, according to the PRC Community Health Assessment.
“The Walk ‘N Talk series encourages the community to get moving,” said Lindy Beswick, coordinator of community health and wellness for Norman Regional Health System. “These walks are a great opportunity to talk with the Mayor, find out what is going on in Norman, network, and learn about walking locations in the area – all while getting a one to two mile walk!”
Healthy Community has partnered with Mayor Rosenthal to schedule the walks. Healthy Community, sponsored by Norman Regional Health System, is a growing team of businesses, individuals, organizations, and health care professionals working towards creating a healthier Norman by focusing on four nationally recognized health concerns: hypertension, obesity/overweight, smoking and lack of physical exercise.
