April 16th National Walk Day!

Yesterday was the 2nd annual Start Walking Day! So we are on day two of an annual quest. I never knew they had such a thing but I commend the American Heart Association. Considering that Americans have gained over last year 20% more weight buy spending 30 mins a day that is all just 30 minutes you can start on the way to improving your cardiac rate.

Heres what they say:

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S. And physical inactivity doubles the risk. Start! walking and start reducing your risk.

You can support the fight against heart disease by participating in National Start! Walking Day, Wednesday, April 16.

On this special day:

  • Show your support and wear your sneakers to work.
  • Take a 30-minute walk during the day.
  • Make your pledge to live a longer, healthier life.
  • Get involved in our goal to reach a million miles walked and a million dollars donated by the end of the day.*
    *Details coming soon

By joining others across the country, you’ll be a part of the solution to get America walking.
