Walking for Health

Walking is one of the simplest forms of exercise to improve overall health and wellbeing. Regular activity is good for the heart, lowers risk of medical complications and is an excellent way to maintain a healthy weight.

Benefit from Activity

Physical activity is the 4th biggest killer in the world.  As little as 15 minutes of regular daily exercise is enough to help you live longer and have a better quality of life.  For more information visit:
