and experience different healthy foods that they can cook at home, as well as numerous fun sports, games and activities that can make a home-based physical fitness practice less routine and more enjoyable. For individuals and families not interested in activities led by instructors, street games such as hopscotch, jump rope, urban ball games and others are available. “The local businesses and ven-


dors who are participating in the event clearly understand the challenge of today’s rushed lifestyle, where we attempt to pack work, school, home- work, after-hours activities, family time, physical exercise and making healthy meals all into one day, every day. This was one of the inspirations for helping Lee County residents learn about options that could make their lives easier and healthier. For example, if someone loves a healthy dish from one of our restaurant vendors, they can take a business card and know where to pick up a meal and what to order. This also applies to the activity ven- dors,” advises Holm. The Streets Alive Lee nonprofit


corporation is already organizing future events. “We are interested in longevity and frequency, which means that com- munity support is very important to us. It will not only help Streets Alive Lee to sustain the momentum, but also in our application for grants to cover the expenses of events, such as the one we are planning for April 2014. A healthy community is a thriving community, and that’s what we are all anticipating,” remarks Holm.
