Healthy Huntsville announces Mayor’s 100-Mile Walking Challenge

Huntsville, Ala. – Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle and the Healthy Huntsville leadership team announced a new fitness opportunity. The Mayor’s 100-mile Walking Challenge, a citywide effort to encourage people of all ages to add physical activity to their daily routines, is challenging citizens to walk at least 100 miles from Sept. 1 to November 30. 

“Walking is easy, free, and pays big dividends for our physical and mental well-being,” said Mayor Battle. “It’s low-impact on the body but high-impact in health benefits. This challenge asks us to walk a little more than one mile a day – and that is something everyone can do.”
