Tennessee Leaders Celebrate National Walking Day with a Challenge

by Denise C. on Monday, April 7, 2014

National Walking Day received great attention on Wednesday, April 2.  That day, Governor Bill Haslam and several legislative leaders held a press conference at the State Capitol to issue a challenge not only to the Legislature, but to all Tennesseans, to walk for 30-minutes.  These legislative leaders included Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, House Speaker Beth Harwell, Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Bill Ketron and Assistant Republican Leader Kevin Brooks.  Over 50 people attended the event.  After the press conference, legislators participated in a group walk from the State Capitol to the Plaza using pedometers donated by the American Heart Association.
