Lace up for National Walking Day 2019

Claudia Pors March 5, 2019 Claudia is a former Business Development Manager of Residential Services at Arlington Transportation Partners.

ATP Takeaway: Earn Champions credit for promoting National Walking Day and register a walking team with your coworkers. Visit any of our four pit stops in Arlington on Wednesday, April 3 to join the fun.

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.
