Mayor kicks off fitness council promoting healthy lifestyles

Posted: Updated:

 Mayor Dan Pope teamed up with Texas Tech, local hospitals, schools, and health organizations on a fitness council initiative. 

The council aims to bring together local leaders and community members who share a vision of promoting a healthy lifestyle in Lubbock. Pope said he hopes this initiative will highlight the resources here in Lubbock for health and fitness. 

"Over and over and over, people talked about wanting more things to do outdoors, wanting more parks, access to parks, bike lanes, ability to do things outside, take advantage of our natural resources." Pope said. "So this effort is aimed at trying to educate people on what is there and then maybe over time create more opportunities for what is there for our citizens."

Pope said the primary goals of the group are to endorse fitness and wellness events and unify local health and wellness organizations. For more information on the initiative visit,
