Boston news radio station highlights National Walking Day

The American Heart Association established National Walking Day to encourage physical activity, like walking, for better health and well-being.

This year, National Walking Day is Wednesday, April 5, and the American Heart Association is encouraging national and local media to participate by encouraging audiences to move more and sit less. Physical activity is one of the most powerful tools for managing stress, boosting mood and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, like heart disease and stroke.
