National Walk at Lunch

Turn your working lunch into a walking lunch!

It can be hard to find time in your busy schedule to participate in physical activity. At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, we know taking a walk is one of the simplest, safest and most effective forms of exercise. This is why Blue Cross sponsors and facilitates National Walk@Lunch Day events. These events encourage people with busy lifestyles – like you! – to enjoy a nice walk during your lunch break. We hope these events encourage you, your friends, and your co-workers to make daily walks a part of your routine.

Whether you plan to bring a team of co-workers with you to one of our Blue Cross-sponsored local events, host or participate in a private event at your workplace, or even if you just decide to take a short walk on your own, Blue Cross will provide you with the tools you need to ensure your National Walk@Lunch Day event is a success!
