Fun Holiday – Walk to Work Day

Years of medical research has shown that walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy and keep your body in shape. So, once a year, why not take the doctor’s advice and walk to work on Walk to Work Day?

Walk to Work Day, an unofficial holiday, occurs on various dates in different countries. In the United States, the day is annually observed on the first Friday of April.

This event is different from the American Heart Association’s National Walk to Work Day, which is held on the first Wednesday of April.

How to Celebrate?

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and walk to work.
  • If you are unable to walk to work, take public transport instead and then walk from the bus or train stop to your workplace.
  • If you have to drive or take public transport to your workplace, why not walk to your lunch instead.
  • Not in the United States, do not worry! You can still celebrate the holiday by yourself. Recruit colleagues and friends to walk with you to work.
