ATP Takeaway: There are a few changes to National Walking Day 2017, with more health benefits for you and your employees, tenants or residents. Register for the event and share the link with others on your walking team!

Walking benefits your mind, body and soul. This simple and easy exercise triggers creativity while keeping our minds and bodies healthy. Let’s take a step together to a healthier life and start walking.

Join Arlington Transportation Partners on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 for National Walking Day. Walking is a great way to support health and wellness amongst your employees, tenants and residents. Studies find that a short walk during the day can almost immediately improve people’s mood and their ability to handle stress at work. Combat the afternoon coffee cravings in stride and focus, walk around a couple of blocks or choose a walkabout. National Walking Day is for everyone!

What’s new this year?
