What is National Walking Day?
The American Heart Association has named the first Wednesday of each April, National Walking Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of physical activity.
Invite your family, friends and coworkers to walk with you towards a healthier life!
Why start walking? It’s easy, it works and it pays!
- Heart disease is this country’s number one killer but by exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day you can reduce your risk.
- Studies show that for every hour of walking, life expectancy may increase by two hours.
- Walking is the single most effective form of exercise to achieve heart health
