National Walking Day – April 4th

As we prepare for the annual American Heart Association Heart Walk later this year, I would like to take a moment to personally make you aware of National Walking Day.

Walking is so easy. Just put one foot in front of the other. Step by step, day after day, you walk to make progress. Every day we take thousands of steps to get where we need to go. Now we can take steps toward a healthy workplace and support the American Heart Association.

On Wednesday, April 4, USF Sarasota-Manatee will join the American Heart Association in celebrating National Walking Day. It is a day to challenge ourselves and our nation to get heart healthy, get fit and fight the No. 1 killer of Americans – heart disease.

To help in this fight, we will have an event on this day, “Walk Across Campus.”

I hope you will join in this event to help make USF Sarasota-Manatee a healthier campus community. Mark your calendars now. More details will be coming soon!
