That's where Prevention, America on the Move, the American Podiatric Medical Association, and the US Department of Health and Human Services come in. Together we're asking you to join our campaign to make Friday, April 2, the official Walk to Work Day for all Americans. "The science continues to show that walking just 30 minutes a day can have a real, positive effect on your health," says Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson. "I'm encouraging every American to walk to work on Friday, April 2. For those of you who live too far away to walk to work, find another time to walk during the day. Walk before work, walk after work, walk during your lunch break, or if you smoke, give up your smoke break and go for a walk—without your cigarettes. And take a coworker with you. Just by taking a few simple steps we can all live healthier, happier, longer lives."
If you park downtown, park on City Island and walk, take lunch break out along the river in Riverfront Park and look at all the danged painted cows, walk up and down the steps in your office building instead of using the elevator (or if your afraid of the rain)!
