(Washington, DC) – On Saturday, July 25, 2015 at 9 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser, along with Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt, Director of the DC Department of Health (DOH), Keith Anderson, Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and Ward 2 FitDC Coach Aimee Stoltz, will rally Ward 2 residents at the Jelleff Recreation Center to participate in a 1.5 mile walk through the Georgetown neighborhood as part of the FitDC health and wellness initiative. This effort is part of the Mayor’s commitment to a fresh start to health and wellness in the District of Columbia and aims to encourage residents to live healthier lifestyles by linking them to nutrition and physical fitness resources in their communities, including FitDC coaches who can offer guidance on making healthy lifestyle choices.

In addition, Mayor Bowser will discuss the Billion Steps Challenge, a citywide effort that encourages all DC residents to get active by collectively walking one billion steps. This challenge serves as a unique platform that will allow the FitDC coaches to encourage and motivate participants to get out, move more and make healthier choices resulting in better health outcomes.
