Mayor releases community walk schedule
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

As part of his “Healthy Downey” campaign as mayor, Mario Guerra will begin hosting twice-monthly community walks to encourage healthy eating and an active lifestyle.

Walks will be held Wednesdays at different parts of town. The first two walks – Jan. 16 and Jan. 23 – will be held on the Downey High School track.

Residents are invited to walk while sharing their ideas and concerns with the mayor.

Walks start at 6 p.m. and are expected to last about an hour.

“I’m excited to be able to begin the first ever ‘Mayor’s Walking Wednesdays’ and look forward to interacting with our residents and sharing with them all of the great things that are going in our city,” Guerra said. “Join me in being active and living a healthy life. Let’s experience a ‘Healthy Downey’ together.”

Here is the walking schedule for the next six months:

*Feb. 6 & 20 (Columbia Memorial Space Center)

*March 13 & 27 (Civic Center)

*April 10 & 24 (Downey schools, exact locations TBA)

*May 8 & 22 (Barbara J. Riley Community and Senior Center)

*June 12 & 26 (Apollo Park and Wilderness Park, respectively).
