Nearly 50 cities promoting health and fitness
The Alexandria Echo Press is reporting that the City of Alexandria has joined the growing list of Governor's Fit City Program participants. The program, administered through the State Department of Health is designed "to recognize Minnesota cities that are committed to creating and maintaining a city environment supportive of active living. A Minnesota city making this commitment is providing opportunities for physical activity to people who live, work and play within the city." The City will participate in the program at no cost.
