Get up and move on National Start! Walking Day

Do you keep putting exercise off?  Promising you’ll start next week, but never do?  Why not start on April 6th, National Start! Walking Day, sponsored by the American Heart Association.  Bring your sneakers to work and wear green to show that you support the American Heart Association’s walking movement.  Join the St. Anthony’s walking group at noon as we walk to promote heart health–or start a walking team of your own!  Check back for more details on our location and walking path. 

For more information on Start! Walking Day, including your free downloadable toolkit and tips for encouraging others to join in, visit http://www.startwalkingnow.org/about_start_walking_day.jsp

Make April 6th the day to create a plan for year-round physical activity!  Rally others to partner with you (after all, exercise is a lot more fun with a buddy). You’ll be helping to fight the lack of physical activity that is contributing to the rise of obesity in America.  Plan to do cardiovascular activity for just 30 minutes most days of the week.  What’s the reward?  A longer, healthier, happier life.
