Still Time to Make April Your Walking Month at Work

Walk CalendarGo! Bismarck-Mandan, our local healthy community coalition, aims to continuously bring people together to build a culture of health where we live, learn, work, and play.  Walking does not require any special skills. It also does not require a gym membership or expensive equipment.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults get at least 150 minutes of physical activity a week.  Following these guidelines can contribute to overall health, and decrease the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes.

Our coalition is promoting several walking events in April:

Thunderbird Run:  Visit www.runsignup.com/Race/ND/Bismarck/ThunderbirdSpringRun to learn more and register by April 13th!
     When: April 15th, Race times vary
     Where: United Tribes Technical College
     Who: Open to Adults and Youth

BCBS Walk @ Lunch Day:  Join BCBS, Public Health, City employees and GO! members as we walk to the Capitol and back over lunch.
When: April 26th at 12:00 Noon
Where: Meet at Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health, 500 East Front Ave
Who: Open to All
