But a community health initiative is attempting to make that distance seem a lot shorter for locals here. Between now and the games’ opening ceremony Aug. 8, organizers of the Kent4Health initiative are inviting walkers, cyclists and runners to log their miles on a Web site, to have Kent go the distance to the games.
