Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can do so many good things for your body like lower blood pressure, help control blood sugar, stimulate the mind, and much more. Walking is a great aerobic activity that almost anyone can do.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has created a network of fun, fact-filled, community-based walking routes and walking groups through the WalkWorks program which:
- Identifies and promotes safe walking routes
- Offers social support through guided, community-based walking groups
- Helps schools develop walk-to-school programs
- Addresses local policies to increase safe walking routes
