Albany - A little healthy competition is brewing up between Albany and Savannah. Mayor Willie Adams and the mayor of Savannah are sponsoring a health competition between families in the two cities.

Twenty families from each will be selected to participate in the 10 week challenge. The city that shows the most improvement in overall health will be selected winner. Adams, who is also a doctor, says it's vital people begin to make their health a priority to avoid chronic illnesses. Dr. Adams said, "We all know that obesity is almost the number one health problem in this country and obesity leads to other health issues such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes and other things that we're concerned about."

The winning family receives a $2,000 cash prize. The competition formally kicks off on Saturday.
