Kick-starting a physical activity routine was the focus on Wednesday, April 1st at some Central Arkansas Schools. The students participated in the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day. In Little Rock, 5th graders at Jefferson Elementary heard from Mayor Mark Stodola about heart health and the importance of activity. The group then took a walk around the school’s track.
In North Little Rock, Mayor Joe Smith spoke with 3rd grade students at Indian Hills before joining in a heart healthy walk.
In Maumelle, students at Academics Plus Charter School laced up their sneakers to head outside and walk. Americans are encouraged to get at least 30 minutes of activity a day.
