Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett spent Friday morning with mall walkers at Honey Creek Mall.

It's part of his mayor's wellness initiative.

The purpose is to get people thinking about living healthier, from being active to eating right, to regularly checking in with their doctors.

Bennett says raising awareness is especially important in Terre Haute.

"I hear a lot of stories about how Terre Haute kind of stands out. We have a high rate of heart attacks, cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure. I just felt like it was time for us to try to do something to raise awareness and get people to try to live more healthy.

Mayor Bennett also says the event was a great way to interact with the public.
