Nine Cities Challenge Came to Cathedral City on Saturday
Mayor Stan Henry, Mayor Pro Tem Greg Pettis, and Councilmember Shelley Kaplan along with other staff and community members participated in the Nine Cities Workplace Wellness Challenge this past Saturday morning at Dennis Keat Soccer Park. The challenge encourages individuals to reach their personal health goals and earn points for the team.
Team Cathedral City sported their new looks, walked several miles, and raised awareness about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
