Health & Wellness


The City of Shreveport is walking to New Orleans– Walk With Us! This is the theme for the City of Shreveport’s 2015 Annual Health and Wellness Program. Employees, their families, friends and downtown community are challenged to walk 350 miles, the distance from Shreveport to New Orleans. The walk begins Friday, April 10, 2015 at 12:00 noon in front of Government Plaza ( 505 Travis Street) and will conclude October 23,2015. The event will kick off with traditional zydeco music,cheerleaders and our own Mayor Tyler leading the health challenge with words of motivation.

The public is encouraged to sign up and begin or continue their walk to great health. Participates that complete all 350 will be invited to attend a Mardi Gras celebration and parade downtown.
