This month two State Advocacy Committee volunteers went to the Colorado State Capitol to encourage legislators and their staff to participate and to encourage their own communities to in being more active.

Move More Month is part of the American Heart Association’s Healthy For Good™ movement, which inspires people everywhere to make lasting changes in their health and their lives, one small step at a time. The volunteers, Julie Hill and Jeri Barajas, helped spread this message by passing out water bottles with notes reminding lawmakers that:
“The American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity each week. That’s only 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.”
We hope that this message sticks and thank you to our volunteers and everyone who made an effort to get the community more active.
