Dean & St. Mary’s sponsor the American Heart Association’s National Walk Day event on Wednesday, April 1

Walking just 30 minutes per day can decrease your risk of heart disease

Americans are spending more time at work and sitting in front of screens than ever before. Becoming less active is known to increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases.In fact, exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day you can reduce your risk of heart disease.That's what the American Heart Association's National Walking Day is all about - walk more to live a longer, healthier life.

On Wednesday, April 1, 2015, Dean & St. Mary’s hope community members join us in supporting the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day event. We’re encouraging everyone in south central Wisconsin to lace up their sneakers and take 30 minutes out of their day to get up and walk!

As part of the effort, the American Heart Association is hosting a National Walking day event at Law Park on Wednesday, April 1 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Walkers are encouraged to walk along the bike path adjacent to Lake Monona for as far as they feel comfortable. The route will start and end at Law Park.
