Streets Alive! was created to incorporate fun, fitness and food to promote healthier lifestyles by temporarily closing streets to motor vehicles and opening them for people to have fun and get active.

The rise of obesity and lack of physical activity in America is not news.
Doing something about it is.
The Healthy Lee movement was created to inspire the people of Lee County regarding healthy lifestyle choices through education and action. To demonstrate health in action, it offers “Streets Alive!” Temporarily opening streets for people to have fun and get active.
The first Streets Alive! Event will include:
• A fun and festive setting where participants will be encouraged to have some human-powered fun — walking, biking, jogging, Zumba, hopscotch, skateboarding, street games, jump rope, yoga, dancing and more — along a 2-3 mile route.
• Not just one event, but regular events throughout the year and throughout the county that become part of the community— something people put on their calendars and make a routine part of their lives.
• Healthy communities are good for business and business development, creating a quality of life that benefits current residents and businesses as well as attracting new people and enterprises to our community.
