Kirby Park was busy yesterday afternoon with walkers joining in a mile walk with Mayor Dwain Morrison. The event was held to kick off the Walk Accross Texas intiative. The event brought out more than 40 persons to the park for the Mayors Wellness Partnership. The partnership involves the County Hunger Coalition and the Texas Hunger Initiative. The effort is being held to help promote healthy lifestyles through walking. Several informational booths were set up in the park. Teams of walkers can sign up for an 8 week program through the Texas A&M extension service.
