Tomorrow, the city of Alexandria is inviting residents and visitors to celebrate the launch of Mayor William D. Euille’s “Get Healthy for Life, Alexandria” initiative. Developed in collaboration with local health and fitness organizations, the event is a community effort to encourage healthier eating and living.

The event’s kick-off is at the Market Square Farmer’s Market from 8:30-10 a.m. and features an appearance by former Redskin Roy Jefferson, cooking demonstrations by the Majestic restaurant, various raffles and an opportunity to join the “Get Healthy Alexandria” team for the 50 Million Pound Challenge.

The event is free and open to everyone.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
