Get ready-to-use materials to help you plan and promote a National Walk @ Lunch Day event at your workplace for Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

With just 30 minutes and a pair of comfortable shoes, it’s possible for anyone to fit physical activity into a busy schedule. That’s the inspiration behind National Walk @ Lunch Day.

A brisk, 30-minute walk can help people:

  • Decrease the risk of heart attack and type 2 diabetes
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Improve muscle tone
  • Reduce stress1

Even though National Walk @ Lunch Day only happens once a year, employers can encourage their employees to make good health a priority every day by implementing a worksite wellness program with help from Independence. A worksite wellness program can help reduce health care costs by keeping employees motivated to make healthier lifestyle choices.
