Start Walking for a Healthier Lifestyle!

Wear sneakers to work and take a stand against heart disease by participating in National Start Walking Day.

Walk for health. Walk for life.

Walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity and has multiple health benefits:

Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease
Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels
Improve blood lipid profile
Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity
Enhance mental well-being
Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
Reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer
Reduce the risk on non-insulin dependant (Type 2) diabetes

Did you walk 10,000 steps today?
Barbara Thompson of Martinsville did!
