A short walk a day keeps the doctor at bay. We all know the benefits of walking and often find it challenging to fit a short walk in our busy schedules. Join Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 for National Walking Day and together let’s make a start to a healthier life.
National Walking Day Is for Everyone
Slow walkers, moderate walkers, brisk walkers—National Walking Day is for everyone. Form a walking group with coworkers, friends or neighbors and register with us. Stop by the nearest pit stop between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., partake in the festivities planned, and pick up fun giveaways from the ATP table and other participating local vendors.
What’s happening this year?
Our friends from Virginia Hospital Center will be at all four pit stops demonstrating desk exercises to keep you active throughout the day. Everybody’s favorite sweetgreen will be sharing giveaways at Ballston, Crystal City, and Rosslyn. Plus, many more partners and vendors will be on site at each pit stop to welcome and greet walkers.
A walking meeting or a short walk during the day is a great way to boost creativity, lower stress, and curb sugar cravings. As a Gold Level Walk Friendly Community, Arlington has a lot to offer on foot. Walkabouts are a great resource to explore different neighborhoods at your convenience. You might even find a route to explore on the big day.
Bonus for our clients – Participation in National Walking Day also helps your business or property earn Silver Level Champions credit.
