FLINT (WJRT) -
(04/30/14) - Wednesday was National Walk at Lunch Day.
It's a day to walk at lunch, and pledge to make activity part of your day - all for better overall health.
Businesses all over Mid-Michigan walked on Wednesday.
Included in those businesses - Diplomat Pharmacy in Flint.
"Because of the size of this building, the circular hallway that kinda goes around the whole building where everybody works is a quarter of a mile. So it really makes it convenient for them to walk during lunch or during their breaks before and after work," said Jeffery Rowe, of Diplomat Pharmacy.
Diplomat set a goal for all employees to collectively walk 1,000 miles on Wednesday.
Many experts agree just 30 minutes of moderate activity can reduce your risk of heart disease, help with weight loss, and improve mental health.
