The American Heart Association and local sponsor Sheehy Auto Stores challenges you and your company to a continuous virtual walking event on the Greater Washington Region’s Move More Day, Wednesday, April 14!

- Host walking meetings.
- Put a 15-minute hold on calendar at lunch to get out and walk.
- Start an email chain to send fun pictures while on a walk.

For more information and tools for your company please email your AHA staff partners at Cayla.DiGiovanni@heart.org.
For all of Move More Month and beyond, the American Heart Association is encouraging the nation to spend at least 30 minutes of their day briskly walking or finding ways to move more. Being active is a great way to maintain our physical and mental health – especially during this time of continued social distancing. Join us for Fierce 5 movement breaks, workouts, streaming events, tips and activities that will motivate you to move more every day so you can Live Fierce.
Get your friends motivated and #MoveMoreDC from wherever you are! Check out the activation guide for ideas on how to move more. Move More Month is just one of the many ways you can get involved locally in the Heart Challenge. There are many events like the Heart Walk and CycleNation to keep you having fun and get you moving.
