Beta Team Wraps Up “Walk for Your Heart” Campaign for American Heart Month

Our team decided to take our Feb. 5 National Wear Red Day initiative a step further and launched a “Walk for Your Heart” campaign that ran from Feb. 8–26.    The campaign’s goal was to encourage physical activity and raise awareness about heart health.

For every walk or aerobic activity they completed during the work week, team members could put a paper heart on the wall. Despite inclement weather in    Ohio and Louisiana, our team managed to put more than 140 hearts on the wall in just three weeks.

   

Why Heart Health Is Important

According to the CDC, heart disease is a leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S. and accounts for approximately one in every four deaths.

But we can take action to reduce our risk of heart disease. Some basic steps, according to the Mayo Clinic, include avoiding smoking and tobacco use, exercising    30–60 minutes a day, establishing a heart-healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, managing stress, and completing health screenings regularly.
