Go! 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.
