National Walk @ Lunch Day - Wednesday, April 26

National Walk @ Lunch Day (NW@LD) is an annual event to promote fitness and to encourage regular worksite wellness activities. Employees are encouraged to spend part of their lunch break walking.

NW@LD is part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association’s Walking Works program and is promoted through local Blue Plans, including Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Arkansas Blue Cross is participating and encourages other companies around the state to participate. Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and Department of Human Services (DHS) employees are part of events statewide.

Those participating in the Blue & You Fitness Challenge — hosted by Arkansas Blue Cross, ADH and DHS — are encouraged to get out and walk on April 26. NW@LD is great exercise opportunity for the Challenge. Participants can walk for 30 minutes and log their exercise.
