Mayor Jeff Longwell's next monthly walk – "Walk-A-Longwell – is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday in front of City Hall, 455 N. Main. The walk will last until 6:15 p.m. During Wednesday's walk, participants can park in the city's validated lot in front of City Hall off of 3rd street at no cost.
The Mayor is encouraging exercise and a healthy lifestyle through his monthly fitness initiative. This month, Walk-A-Longwell will be joined by Jane's Walk, a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours, encouraging residents to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities and connect with others.
Longwell started the monthly walk to raise community awareness about health and fitness. The monthly walk also serves as a way for residents to meet the Mayor and share ideas about Wichita. The Mayor is encouraging more Wichita area employers to host their own monthly walk and focus on fitness initiatives in their organizations.
