Mayor Nelda Martinez, the Corpus Christi Parks and Recreation department and local residents joined together at Cole Park for a 10-minute walk.

Mayor Martinez, "we are walking and making sure that we let everyone know how important it is to get up, get moving and get healthy."

This was a part of the Austin-based "It's Time Texas" campaign... a new health awareness and fundraising program.

They encourage everyone to just walk 10-minutes a day to help drop blood pressure, reduce blood sugar, and reduce stress.
