ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A minister who's encouraging her congregation to get healthy and make good decisions, hopes they'll walk with her in Saturday's Jingle Bell Jog.

Rev. Cathy Green has lost more than 100 pounds in the last year, through exercising and making healthy choices. It's allowed her to come off blood pressure medication and have more stamina.

She's trying to pass on these healthy habits to her congregation and challenged them to walk with her at Phoebe's Jingle Bell Jog tomorrow.

"We exercise at church twice a week some of our ladies we get together and exercise as a church so we are trying to do things that don't center around food all the time because it's hard in a small congregation not to always get together around the table," said Green. 

Green says she'll be walking the one mile event. Kick off for the Jingle Bell Jog starts at 8:00 at Phoebe's Health Works.
