SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Some people in downtown San Diego put on their walking shoes to promote the benefits of being active.
The one-mile walk was in honor of National Walking Day held Wednesday, April 3. The walk was organized by the San Diego Chapter of the American Heart Association.
Organizers say a 30 minute walk a day can make a big difference in preventing heart disease and keeping you fit, and the more people you do this with, the easier it gets.
"You know, you're more likely to stick to an event if you have friends or colleagues that are participating with you," explained Tony Grover the Chairman of the American Heart & Stroke Association San Diego. "And walking is just a great way to get to know your friends, get to know your colleagues and take care of your health."
The American Heart Association says heart disease is considered the number one killer in the United States.
