SPARTA, Wis. (WKBT) -

Wisconsin's First Lady is promoting health and fitness in Sparta Tuesday.

The 'Walk with Walker' event was a chance for residents to meet with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's wife Tonette. The walk is also a way to promote lesser known tourism sites across the state, like the Ben Bikin' Park in Sparta.

Walker says she hopes to show people how easy it can be to stay active in their communities.

"I hope that they take away from the fact that Wisconsin is a place where you can get up and get moving, and it doesn't cost you anywhere to go. To go there, it doesn't cost you any money to be able to get up and just walk in your own area and see all that it has to offer,” said Tonette Walker.

Tuesday's 'Walk with Walker' was a one and a half mile journey through Sparta's Ben Bikin' Park.
