CORPUS CHRISTI - Today was the third annual "It's Your Life" walk at Heritage Park. Doctors at the 5K walk say it's important to stay active and make healthy living choices earlier on in life. The "It's Your Life" foundation tries to help young people make good lifestyle choices but they say that's a lot easier said than done.
Dr. Salim Surani, Pulmonologist said, "When I was a kid I loved the candies and now I'm realizing I got a habit of eating those foods and not exercising. So we want to make sure, the newer generation, we're creating health habits." Dr. Surani says obesity is a growing epidemic here in the Coastal Bend and that's why he says making walking a habit is a good choice.
