Mayor Karl Dean joined several score of walkers on Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. at Centennial Park in Nashville to celebrate the finale of his 100 Mile Walk for 2012. Almost 100 people walked 100 miles or more from the beginning of October through the end of 2012.
There were several standouts: Ruth Hessey, a 95-ear-old woman completed about 140 miles walking the halls of the St. Paul Senior Living Community about 840 times since Oct. 1 on her walker.
Another woman walked over 400 miles and several made it over 300 miles in three months. A table held certificates for those who walked at least 100 miles in 2011 and again in 2012. This Examiner logged 164.8 miles. Everyone who walked 100 miles and logged their miles on the 100 Mile Walk website received a free t-short at today's event.
Mayor Dean spoke briefly about the Walk 100 Miles Challenge, stating he would do it again for 2013 and would be adding a spring walk. Then he led the walkers in a one-mile walk around Centennial Park with many in the group repeating the loop for a second mile.
Dean is the sixth mayor of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.
