Lace Up & Go for National Walking Day!



Nowadays, we’re spending more time at work and sitting in front of a screen than ever before. We're becoming less active, which can increase our risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases.

You’re invited to join us as we lace up for a healthier life by taking part in the American Heart Association's National Walking Day. And no matter where you are in Texas, we have three ways you can get involved!


Join our Austin office's #WalkATX Instagram Challenge by following @ahaaustin on Instagram and participating in a full-day of photo challenges! Beginning at 8am, and every hour through 5pm, we'll be posting a different challenge, and every hour we'll be giving away a different prize!

Anyone can participate - just follow @ahaaustin on Instagram and stay tuned for hints until April 6!


Our Advocacy Team will host a special event with a walk around the Capitol grounds to promote active living on National Walking Day! We hope you can join us as we Step Up for Texas Health and kick off a month-long celebration designed to help us all become more active.

You're invited to join us on Twitter for the American Heart Association’s Lace Up For Heart Health CEO Challenge! 10 local CEO's are lacing up and showing off their steps in this 24-hour challenge.
