Tennessee ranks fourth in the nation in childhood obesity. With this in mind, Nashville Mayor Karl Dean follows up his 2011 healthy living campaigns, “Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor” and the “Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run," with the "Mayor's Field Day with the Tennessee Titans." This even is specifically geared towards Nashville's youth, of whom 38.1% are obese or overweight.
The Saturday, May 5th, starting at 9a.m., families can participate in a "relaxed, tournament-type field day, designed around learning new, fun, kid-friendly ways to be active." Current and former Titan's players, Titan's Cheerleaders, and Titan's mascot T-Rac will be there to cheer everyone on.
Participants can have fun moving with events such as the United Healthcare Team Trolley, the Bridgestone Tire Roll, and the HCA Sack Hop. There will also be live entertainment and a fitness fair.
The event and parking is free. Registration is required. It is recommended that participants bring their lunch. For more information, check out the "Mayor's Field Day" website.
