Mayor Benjamin to host Move with the Mayor in Northwood Hills

Contributed by City of Columbia

Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin will continue his Move with the Mayor program with a walk at 6:30 p.m. June 21 in the Northwood Hills neighborhood.

“After pledging to run a 5K shirtless this year to our friends at BlueCross BlueShield [of South Carolina], I know I need to get moving for my training,” said Mayor Benjamin. “All jokes aside, physical activity is incredibly important. We know that walking just 30 minutes a day can prevent heart disease and alleviate issues related to existing health problems. I hope everyone will join me in these walks each month.”

The Move with the Mayor route will start at Alcorn Middle School and loop back to the school for approximately 1.5 miles.

James Patrick, fitness guru, will be leading the walk with various workouts throughout the route.
