TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) – One city in our region is trying to share its wellness initiatives with a large audience. This morning, Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton, along with several locals, hit the “Music Bend Nature Trail” in East Tupelo for a brisk jog. The run was being videotaped and will be included in a video that will be submitted to CNN, as part of a call for cities that have health and wellness initiatives. The network wants to showcase cities that are making strides when it comes to promoting healthy living.
“I think we do that pretty well here in Tupelo through the Healthy Tupelo Task Force, the Tupelo Fit program and then the upcoming Wellness Festival here in Tupelo. ”
Deadline for submissions to CNN is August 10th.
