Lake area residents invited to National Walking Day event

The following is a press release from Christus St. Patrick Hospital:

the CSPH will distribute the American Heart Association's Family Go! cards.  The Family Go! cards are designed to get families moving together in a fun way without special equipment.

 National Walking Day is part of the American Heart Association's My Heart My Life initiative. For every hour of very brisk walking, life expectancy may increase for some adults by two hours. Lack of physical activity can increase a person's risk of cardiovascular disease. To get 6-week guide to starting a walking program, go to www.christusstpatrick.org.

National Walking Day is locally sponsored by CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital. To be part of the Billion Calorie Count-Up, visit http://www.startwalkingnow.org  to access healthy living resources including information about getting active and eating healthy. You can also locate other Walking Paths in our area and download the American Heart Association's Walking Path App.
