The inaugural Monster Dash was held at Central Park Plaza in downtown Valparaiso October 27. The event included both a 1K Family Fun Run, led by Mayor Costas; and a 5K run. Hundreds attended and ran in their Halloween costumes. The Monster Dash was a Fit City event. Mayor Costas created the Fit City initiative in 2005 to encourage residents to maximize their health and be more active. Since then, city parks officials say over 5,000 Valparaiso people have participated in Fit City programming. Next up will be the Fit City Challenge to Change competition in January 2014, offering prizes and incentives for losing weight and adding healthy habits.
