San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro was recently at Woodlawn Park shooting hoops, tossing footballs and jumping rope, all in the name of health and wellness. The fit and trim Castro is on a mission to transform the Alamo City to Fit City. Mayor Castro recorded video messages from the park, encouraging residents to enjoy city parks, get active, and join the FitCitySA Fitness Challenge. The FitCitySA Fitness Challenge, coordinated by the Mayor's Fitness Council, is the latest in a series of initiatives designed to steer San Antonians on the road to better health.
Encouraging San Antonians to get up, get out and get moving, the city’s first Síclovía is set to inspire active family outings and change the city’s image from Fat City to Fit City.
“I am confident we will have a great turnout. Fitness is key in San Antonio, and opening up the streets and public property to allow residents to take advantage and have fun is a great way to improve their health.” – San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro
