Get Ready For Mayor’s Sole Challenge

Mayor's walkHealthy Central Florida, in an effort to spark some friendly—and healthy— competition among Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville, will host the 1st Annual Mayor’s Sole Challenge from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 beginning at the stage in Central Park on Park Avenue in Winter Park.

Healthy Central Florida (HCF), founded by the Winter Park Health Foundation and Florida Hospital, is a community based partnership created to transform the local community into the healthiest in the nation.

Launched earlier this year, it is focused on getting people moving more, eating healthier and enjoying a more vibrant life.

The community celebration will include a 30-minute walk featuring participation by Winter Park Mayor Ken Bradley, Maitland Mayor Howard Schieferdecker and Eatonville Mayor Bruce Mount. The community with the most residents walking in the event wins bragging rights for the mayor and his town or city!

Participants will get to enjoy live entertainment, free food, free T-shirts and free pedometers for the first 300 people to sign up for the event.
