Dozens of Tulsa kids answered the call from Mayor Kathy Taylor to get healthy. The mayor challenged kids to eat well, exercise and keep a fitness journal. The best of the best braved the rain Saturday to receive their honors. The overall fitness challenge winner says she did it to inspire her classmates.

"I did it so I could show other kids maybe next time they can do it and then it's so fun that you get to meet the mayor, and it was really exciting," said Fitness Challenge winner Brooke Lee.

The mayor says she hopes healthy kids will also inspire their parents to get fit.
