Today is National Walking Day
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Today, April 5th, is National Walking Day. In honor of this observance, CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity is releasing a Status Report for Step It Up! The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities.
The Status Report and accompanying slide set summarizes the state of walking and walkability when the Call to Action was released in September 2015, as well as selected activities done since the release to sustain the messages and promote the goals established by the Surgeon General.
We are excited about the report and hope the release will continue to accelerate efforts to promote walking and walkable communities across the nation.
Let’s continue to answer the call and Step it Up! for National Walking Day. Join the conversation and help spread the word by sharing the following messages on your social media channels.
