The Kick Off to the 2019 North Adams Mayor's Fitness Challenge will be this Saturday from 10-1 at the O+ North Adams Festival's "Public Health ExpO+" at The Green, 85 Main St. The Health ExpO+ is free and open to the community. Mayor Tom Bernard will be there from 10:15-10:45 A.M. There will be nothing to pick up or do specifically except to explore and check out the health and wellness partners at the Expo.

The Challenge's event page on Facebook notes that this year's 10-week event will be "leaner and lighter", shifting to an online, paperless model with no tracker, resource guide or packet, and putting a greater focus on wellness events in and for the community. Helping the event off to a healthy, fresh start, Saturday's kickoff event at The Green will include farmers selling local food and products.

You can sign up for the Challenge individually or as a team here.
