CHARLOTTE, N.C. — On Sunday, April 28, from 1-5 p.m., the city of Charlotte will close four miles of city streets to cars for the 7th annual Open Streets 704 event.

The purpose of Open Streets 704 is to encourage people to step outside, interact with others and fall in love with walking and biking again, so they’ll consider doing it as a part of their everyday routine.

More than 30,000 are expected to attend. Dr. Eric Warren from Novant Health Waxhaw Family & Sports Medicine, is here to tell us how people can benefit by participating.
