The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Health Promotion Program is hosting a lunchtime healthy lifestyle walking program from 12:15-12:45 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at the main entrance of Sitka National Historical Park. This walking program was launched in celebration of American Heart Month in February.
Heart disease is the leading killer for men and women in the United States, and one in every four deaths each year is related to heart disease. Walking and similar healthy physical activity is a good way to reduce your risk for heart disease.
We’re “just trying to encourage physical activity for a healthy heart,” SEARHC Health Educator Heleena Van Veen said. The free walking program is open to all, and there is no target age group. For more information, contact Heleena at 966-8914 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
