Streets Alive set as signature Healthy Lee event

The Healthy Lee movement is taking its message of healthier lifestyle choices to the streets this fall, thanks to the first-ever Streets Alive event.

Streets Alive will be the first signature event for Healthy Lee, the local wellness coalition created to empower and inspire the people of Lee County regarding healthy lifestyle choices through education and action.

Streets Alive temporarily closes downtown streets to traffic and opens them up for people to play, including free activities such as walking, biking, aerobics, kickball, yoga, dance and more. The first event is set for Sunday, Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the downtown Fort Myers River District.

Streets Alive features instructors offering a buffet of free and accessible games, sports, dance and other movement for attendees to try. There will be several Activity Villages where a variety of activities and instructions will be offered, along with a series of events taking advantage of the traffic-free downtown streets.
