"I Love Me" Campaign is Opportunity for Marion County to Love Bicycling Too

On the Capitol steps tomorrow at 11:30am, Senator Jackie Winters' "I Love Me" campaign kicks off, according to the Statesman. The project coincides with the American Diabetes Association Alert Day, and ME = Move more, Eat right.
Dr. James Lace, a committee member in I Love Me, is a pediatrician with the Childhood Health Associates of Salem. During his 34-year career in Salem, he has seen the number of overweight and obese children increase, he said.

Sixty percent of children in Marion County are overweight and 30 percent are obese, Lace said.
Bicycling and other forms of active transportation are a perfect way to include regular, daily exercise into a healthy lifestyle.
