Lynchburg Gears Up for Second Annual 100 Mile Challenge

Lynchburg, VA - Lynchburg is bringing fitness back to the forefront, and they weren't afraid to have a little fun with it too, tossing out pedometers to a crowd Monday.

Organizers discussed the 2nd annual 100 Mile Challenge at Lynchburg City Hall Monday morning.

The event is part of Work Healthy's fitness challenges, which helps both people and companies improve their health.

The focus is more on companies getting involved in their employees' health.

"We're going to be launching some great new updates and enhancements to the sight...easy ways for companies to get a company administrator and start building enthusiasm throughout the company," said Christine Kennedy with the Lynchburg Chamber of Commerce.

Last year, Lynchburg lost a total of 12 tons.
