For the 7th year the Obesity Prevention Coalition held their annual Family Fun Run/Walk prior to the Decatur Celebration parade. Spectators cheered on the participants who ran, young and old. The event is held each year to raise awareness of the importance of preventing obesity to have a healthy community. Obesity is a contributing factor to many of the most life threatening medical conditions. Brandi Binkley of the Macon County Health Department and Tara Nickerson, General Manager of the Cromwell Radio Group helped to kick off the event with words of encouragement for participants.
