National Start Walking Day


Hundreds of Downtown Houston employees will put on their suits and sneakers and head over to Houston Pavilions to get moving during a one-mile guided walk on National Start Walking Day.

To combat obesity and improve overall heart health, the American Heart Association is asking all Americans to incorporate at least 30 minutes of walking into their day, especially while at work. Houston companies will demonstrate their commitment to a healthy work environment by allowing employees to wear sneakers to work in hopes the trend will continue throughout the year, making wellness in the workplace a priority.

A boxed lunch will be provided to the first 300 attendees to arrive at Houston Pavilions. For those who pledge to walk 365 days a year, they will be registered to win two Continental airline tickets.
