Move with the Mayor Challenge Promotes Heart Health
West Chicago’s Mayor, Ruben Pineda, leads the way with his new initiative focused on living a healthy life. The Move with the Mayor Challenge, sponsored by Republic Bank of Chicago along with other community businesses, is part of a nationwide campaign aimed to motivate six cities across the U.S. to take steps to improve their health by walking with the mayor. The Challenge culminates on September 29, World Heart Day. Organized in association with Healthy West Chicago, the Challenge consists of weekly Saturday walk events that take place at different locations throughout West Chicago.
The family-oriented events are drawing hundreds of people every week. “These events are a terrific way to promote healthy lifestyles and we are honored to be associated with an event that brings the community together,” shared Omar Espinosa, Republic Bank VP/Branch Sales Manager.
