Blue Springs Mayor Carson Ross invites the community to join him for a 30-minute walk to celebrate spring and good health.

“March with the Mayor” will be on Friday, March 28, beginning at Blue Springs City Hall, 903 W. Main St. Ross will welcome walkers at noon, along with warm-up activities. The walk through downtown Blue Springs begins at 12:15 p.m.

“I invite everyone to join me for a spirited walk through downtown Blue Springs,” said Ross in a release. “This event is a great way to show people how easy it is to put on your tennis shoes and get moving over your lunch hour.”

More than 200 walkers are expected to walk with the mayor. Kansas City Chiefs football team mascot, KC Wolf, will be among those in attendance to cheer on the walkers.

The American Heart Association recently said that the simplest, positive change one can make to effectively improve your heart health is to start walking.
