The Walking Season Kicks Off

Over 320 fun-loving walkers came out and joined us today at Wright Park to celebrate National Walking Day! This relaxing walk route was hosted by the American Heart Association and Downtown on the Go and it included a tour of the park by local experts. It was not only a scenic and healthy experience but educational as well!

The American Heart Association recommends 40 minutes of aerobic exercise of moderate to vigorous intensity 3-4 times a week to lower risks for heart attack and stroke. The simplest, positive change you can make to effectively improve your heart health is to start walking. A walking program is flexible and boasts high success rates because people can stick with it. It’s easy for walking to become a regular and satisfying part of life.

Show your support for the benefits of walking and physical activity by joining us for the 2015 Heart and Stroke Walk on Saturday, October 3rd at the LeMay Car Museum in Tacoma.
