The gloomy sky and wintry snowfall didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits on Saturday morning (April 2). The 3K Walk in Sherman Park was the kickoff to a series of events being called the Milwaukee Healthy County Challenge. It was well-attended, with an impressive lineup of dignitaries, including County Executive David Crowley, Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson, County Supervisor Felesia Martin, Parks Director Guy Smith, and Damian Buchman, founder and director of The Ability Center.
The goals of the Challenge are community building and making Milwaukee County the healthiest in the state. The series of events, which will continue through May, are organized jointly by Milwaukee County Parks, the Milwaukee Parks Foundation, and The Ability Center, whose mission is to help people impacted by disabilities become fit, active, and healthy.
More information about the Milwaukee Healthy County Challenge can be found on Facebook.
