(LeMars) -- More than 291,000 people decided to take a walk Friday at noon in support of the goal of making Iowa the Healthiest State in the Nation.  Here in LeMars, 1812 people participated in the "Start Somewhere Walk".  Todd Lancaster, executive director with the LeMars YMCA, says the next phase in making the goal of Iowa becoming the healthiest state is for LeMars officials to attend a "road show" and share with officials LeMars' interest in becoming a "Blue Zone" Community.  Ten communities across Iowa will be recognized by Blue Cross - Blue Shield / Wellmark Insurance Company as being a "blue zone" community and will be awarded $2.5 million over the course of five years.
