Calling all Corpus Christi active lifestyle enthusiasts!
There may be no city in Texas more naturally designed for an active lifestyle than Corpus Christi. Our beautiful water with its available and potential water sports, existing popular events like Beach to Bay and Conquer the Coast (naming two of the many that have utilized our entire geography), the spaces we have created and are still creating to walk, run, bike and play.
Our streets, sidewalks and bodies of water should be FILLED with healthy community enjoying our Sparking City by The Sea. How can WE get there together?
The rally is open to everyone with a special call to cyclists, runners, kayakers, paddleboarders, surfers, walkers, fishermen (and women), boaters, hikers, skateboarders, gardeners, kiteboarders, windsurfers, yoga-ers....ANYONE that supports growing the level of active lifestyle in Corpus Christi.
'Active Lifestyle' is not the city's greatest issue, but it is an issue that its many hard-working advocates can come together and help solve. I suggest that this is the shortest-term solution to solve it. I also suggest that this is the best solution to solve it.
Within my community activism and prior to my candidacy for mayor, I have given heavy focus to the things that I could be the most influence in. I refer to that as 'Healthy Community' and it usually falls into 3 categories: access to affordable, nutrient dense foods, creative solutions to quality of life community development and affordable access to active lifestyle.
While solving the multitude of concerns we currently have in our community, I believe we can pick up some quick win solutions that increase community pride, community responsibility and residents' quality of life while pursuing necessary, missing city components that will make us more attractive for prospective residents and business.
If you are a local active lifestyle enthusiast, like myself, you will want to be in the room.
