Lincoln, Ne-- It was a day of healthy fun on Sunday. Streets Alive is a program that the city puts on to create an active lifestyle for the community.
It includes food, fun, games, and music--all for free. The goal is to focus on kids and adults struggling with obesity.
"Fitness, obesity, and lifestyles, healthy lifestyles and we thought an event that made you do something healthy would be the best," said Dr. Bob Rauner, executive director of Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln.
Rauner said 16-percent of kids in Lincoln schools are obese, and it's has been the city's challenge.
And what would be the solution?
"By encouraging people to walk, walk, walk," said Mayor Chris Beutler.
At the end of the day, Streets Alive hopes to bring awareness to Lincoln communities about the actions families need to take to keep their them healthy.
