Some Pike county residents spent the afternoon walking at the expo center all for health.
The Pike county health department and other agencies hosted the "Fit Pike County Walk and Wellness" event. They encouraged people to walk around the expo center for exercise and also showed people how they can end unhealthy habits and make healthy lifestyle changes.
"We're encouraging people to get active this new year," says Patrece Beverly of the Pike County Health Department. "Our theme is "get on the right track," and we're hoping people will choose healthy tracks this new year whether it be quitting smoking, or starting to exercise more, or eating a healthier diet."
Residents could also get health screenings at the event.
