Mt. Everest Climber Visits Hill City

Lynchburg, VA - He's an author, and adventurer; he's even climbed Mount Everest. Roanoke native Jeff Evans will be speaking in Lynchburg Saturday.

It's a part of Live Healthy and Work Healthy Lynchburg. Saturday morning Evans will hold a motivational walk and talk in Peaks View Park. The walk celebrates Lynchburg's 100 Mile Challenge.

Evans says he likes how Lynchburg is challenging its residents to live healthier lives. Evans says it will motivate our kids.

"And then maybe our kids get inspired and excited and say, 'I see mom and dad, or sister, brother or grandparents I see them living this way, making these changes. And, ya know what, I want to do that too," said Evans.
