Posted May 12 2009 5:43pm
Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies across the country are working with employers to get their employees healthier. Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies are holding lunchtime walks across America as part of the third annual National Walk @ Lunch Day® because of the high costs that come along with an inactive lifestyle.
Walks are being hosted in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to engage employees, consumers and community leaders in healthy activities to promote the health benefits of walking. Thousands of walkers are participating in this healthy initiative.
Daily, brisk walking is one of the easiest and safest forms of exercise. A regular walking program can help control weight, condition the heart and lungs, strengthen bones and help you towards a healthier lifestyle. This can even save you money in the long run on health insurance.
