There are a lot of great reasons to take a walking break during the day. A few minutes of daily activity is good for your heart, the fresh air is good for well, your whole body; plus, stepping away from your desk for a little bit helps re-calibrate your focus.
On April 3, 2019, you can also add National Walking Day to your list of reasons to get in your midday steps. With four exciting pit stops all over Arlington County, Champions credit for your company, and awesome giveaways, this is the perfect day to shake up your lunchtime routine.
Save The Date
National Walking Day is Wednesday, April 3 and pit stops will be open 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
