First Annual Mayor’s Walk a Huge Success!
Mayor Jim Bouley leads the walk with Johane Telgener, Director of Concord Hospital Center for Health Promotion and Joe Kasper, Director of Corporate Services at Northeast Delta Dental.
More than 100 people showed up for the first annual Mayor’s Walk, a one-mile walk through downtown Concord to support the I Prefer to Walk! campaign, which promotes wellness, community, and walkability of Concord’s beautiful downtown. The walk began at the Capital Area Wellness Coalition office building on Main Street and culminated at a Healthy Living Fair in Bicentennial Square, where over a dozen vendors displayed information about their goods and services. Breakfast was also served courtesy of Stonyfield yogurt and BagelWorks Cafe.
