Nashville Mayor hosts walking event on Wednesday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Nashville Mayor Karl Dean is hosting a walk with the mayor event on Wednesday.

It's part of the Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor campaign. The walk will start around 6:30 p.m. at McCabe Community Center and end there.

The mayor is expected to walk about three miles with Achilles International, an organization that helps people with disabilities participate in sports.

He is encouraging participants to walk 100 miles by the end of the year. The mayor has hosted similar events throughout Davidson County three to four times a month.

So far, more than 300 people have registered and walked over 16,000 miles.
