KP Kickoff, Before the Rains!

Jeff Galloway, Mayor Floyd, and Susan and Dr. Luke Beno from Kaiser

The KP Kickoff got off to a great start on Monday night, but was cut short by the threat of heavy rain and lightening. But, before the rains came, over 15 fitness businesses gathered on the Old Courthouse Square. Mayor Floyd and Jeff Galloway were on hand to welcome the attendees and talk about the importance of fitness in our daily lives. Dr. Luke Beno from Kaiser Permanente and Doc Broc welcomed everyone and encouraged folks to sign up for the KP Corporate Walk/Run to be held in downtown Atlanta on September 16. As you may know, we are forming “Team Decatur” to walk together.  Click here for information and to sign up as a member of Team Decatur. All members will receive a specially designed Team Decatur t-shirt. Sign up before August 16 to not only receive the early bird rate, but to guarantee your shirt size.

Part of the Team Decatur Get Fit program includes free training. Click here for a schedule of walks and runs held throughout the city.

Singer-songwriter Morgan Rowe was able to get in part of a song before the lightening came.
