National Walking Day
Employees and students are invited to join Hokie Wellness in celebrating the American Heart Association's National Walking Day on Wednesday, April 5. It is a day to challenge all Hokies to take a step to a healthier lifestyle.
Being physically active is important for maintaining overall health. The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week for adults and 60 minutes per day for children and adolescents. Many individuals do not meet these standards, putting them at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, and other blood vessel diseases, but there is opportunity for change.
On April 5, join millions of Americans as they pledge to live a healthier lifestyle and get physically active.
