Wednesday, April 30, 2014, will be the 8th annual National Walk@Lunch Day.
National Walk@Lunch Day is a nationwide event created by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
Walking is one of the simplest and most effective forms of exercise. National Walk@Lunch Day is designed to encourage people of all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles to make walking a healthy habit for life.
Participation grows every year. Last year, more than 2,700 people participated in National Walk@Lunch Day events in Alabama.
This year, we are planning a statewide National Walk@ Lunch Day event and hope it will be our largest event ever. Businesses, schools and other local organizations are invited to plan walks all across the state of Alabama.
For 2014, Blue Cross will donate $5,000 to the Governor's Commission on Physical Fitness & Sports on behalf of participating businesses, schools and individuals.
