The American Heart Association is encouraging participation in its National Walking Day on Wednesday, April 5.

Health & wellness

The event calls for 30 minutes of walking during a lunch break, around the neighborhood or through a shopping mall.

Memorial Hospital will then kickoff its Walk in the Park series with a public walk, weather permitting, 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 6, at Cousler Park, 1060 Church Road. Walkers can meet at Pavilion C and follow a 1-mile walking path.

The association will focus on other activities throughout the month.
