Kaiser Realty, Inc. Employees do their part to add to the “Billion Calorie Count-UP”
Kaiser Realty, Inc. invites all Alabama Gulf Coast citizens to join our staff for a walk, on National Walking Day, around their official American Heart Association outdoor Walking Path on April 4th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m.
All across the nation on Wednesday, April 4, Americans will be called upon to incorporate 30 minutes of walking into their day. Starting this day, the American Heart Association will count the calories burned by individual walkers at American Heart Association events across the country and add them to the “Billion Calorie Count-UP” total.
The event will begin with a welcome from Robert Craft, Mayor of Gulf Shores and Leonard Kaiser, Kaiser Realty, Inc. and the dedication of the Walking Path. Event attendees are encouraged to participate in the walk and reception in the Blue Heron Ballroom of the Kaiser Realty, Inc. offices in Gulf Shores.
Kaiser Realty, Inc. will distribute the American Heart Association’s Family Go! cards as well! The Family Go! cards are designed to get families moving together in a fun way without special equipment.
National Walking Day is part of the American Heart Association’s “My Heart My Life” initiative. For every hour of very brisk walking, life expectancy may increase for some adults by two hours. Lack of physical activity can increase a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease.
National Walking Day is locally sponsored by Kaiser Realty, Inc.
