National Walking Day

04/03/2019

Time 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Lace up and Go on April 3rd for National Walking Day and take your first steps towards a healthier lifestyle!

In addition to the walking course, the American Heart Association will have several education stations to learn about healthy heart habits, CPR, stroke, and heart disease prevention. Stores at the Springfield Town Center will participate with gift cards, prize baskets and tons of raffle items.

WHO: The American Heart Association is partnering with Sheehy Auto Stores and Springfield Town Center on National Walking Day to host a free public walking and wellness event.

WHERE: Springfield Town Center - 6500 Springfield Mall, Springfield, VA 22150. Springfield Town Center

WHEN: Registration will start at 9:30am, and the walk will kick off at 10am! The activity stations will be open from 10am -12pm, so come by anytime between those hours and enjoy a brisk walk around the mall, while you learn how to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

WHY: National Walking Day is the American Heart Association’s national initiative that champions walking to increase physical activity and help the community move away from a sedentary lifestyle. On this day, Americans are encouraged to lace up their sneakers and take at least 30 minutes out of their day to get up and walk. It's a great way to raise awareness of the importance of physical activity and to give family, friends and co-workers a friendly push toward a healthier life.
