HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Don't be surprised if you see Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle sporting a neon pink t-shirt around town!

Members of sole sisters Huntsville presented Mayor Tommy Battle with our signature Sole Sister pink t-shirt Monday afternoon in the city council chambers. Mayor Battle is a huge proponent for Huntsville residents getting healthy. Mayor Battle actually requested a sole sister shirt after noticing group members at this year's Healthy Huntsville events.

"Well the first time I saw Sole Sisters was at our first Saturday in the park with Healthy Huntsville. There were Sole Sisters out there. A whole group of people in pink t shirts doing zumba and then they went over and did the obstacle course and everything else and I said that is a group I want to be a part of. I want to be with a group that is healthy and active and wants to do good things in the community," said Mayor Battle.

And we are happy to say Mayor Battle is now an official member of Sole Sisters Huntsville joining our 577 members.

Sole Sisters Huntsville organized in February of this year. A lot of people think that we are only a running group but we are a walking, biking, hiking, cycling, aerobics, swimming...fitness group. Our goal is to encourage women to participate in regular exercise. We also place a great deal of importance making healthy nutritional choices. And you can find us on facebook.
