Wilmington Named Fit City

MAY 10, 2006 -- Wilmington may want to change its nickname from the Port City to Fit City. According to one group, Wilmington is one of the healthiest cities in the state.

"Fit Together" has designated eight North Carolina towns as fit communities. That means Wilmington has excelled at promoting healthy lifestyles by supporting healthy eating, physical activity and tobacco-free living.

Nearly 50 cities applied for the honor, but only eight were awarded. Oak Island also received a fit community designation. All fit communities will receive a sign for the town's entrance and a plaque.
