Today is National Walking Day!

Ready to move? Physical inactivity is a leading cause of heart disease and can be more dangerous than smoking. To combat this, the American Heart Association has named the first Wednesday in April as National Walking Day.

Americans are encouraged to walk for at least 30 minutes today — and every day. Statistics from the AHA show that one in two men and one in three women are at risk for heart disease.
