Walking Day at Capitol Spreads Awareness

by Brian B. on Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Colorado advocates participated in a lobby day to promote National Walking Day and highlight “Safe Routes to School” legislation.  Lawmakers received healthy snacks and information on physical activity.

 We had a great turn out with 12 legislators and an additional 15 staffers, for a total of about 27 folks who stopped by to chat with our volunteers.  They all received information about the Safe Routs to Schools bill, the importance of walking and exercise and getting at least 30 minutes a day.

 AHA worked with LiveWell Colorado and Bicycle Colorado to get the word out and we invited all of the legislators to stop by our table.
