Take A Walk On April 4, National Walking Day

Put on your walking shoes and take a nice walk around your neighborhood, not only on National Walking Day, but every day!

National Walking Day on April 4 is just around the corner and UnitedHealthcare is encouraging Americans to get up, walk more and make a commitment to better health through the Step Up for Better Health Pledge.

UnitedHealthcare has created an online resource (www.uhcwalkingmaps.com) with information about the health benefits of walking, suggested 10,000-step walking routes in more than 50 major cities, and a tool that allows you to map out your own 10,000 step walk.

Use the step counter tool to determine how many steps your desired route will be.

UnitedHealthcare will donate $1 on behalf of each of the first 25,000 people to sign the Step Up for Better Health Pledge to Boys & Girls Clubs to help reduce childhood obesity. Participants will also be automatically entered to win fitness-related prizes such as an Apple Watch or a Foot Locker gift card.
