Grand Rapids group clearing sidewalks to promote exercising outdoors

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Instead of letting the snow keep them indoors, a group of workout enthusiasts is making it easier for people to exercise and enjoy the outdoors during cold winter months.

The Grand Rapids-based group called The November Project promotes fitness in association with a nationwide movement.

Members get together every week on Wednesdays for early-morning workouts.

This week, the group met in Veteran's Memorial Park downtown Grand Rapids. Instead of just working out in the park, the group decided to shovel the sidewalks in effort to make it easier for people to get out and exercise.

    Great idea shovel a sidewalk that the city should have taken care of. What about going out and shoveling people’s sidewalks who can shovel themselves.
