What is National Walking Day?

National Walking Day is an entire day devoted to the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke by getting people moving and staying active. This day is celebrated all over U.S. by individuals, communities, schools, and businesses. Anybody can participate in National Walking Day by simply taking 10 minutes out of their work or school day to take a walk, go for a run or do any other type of physical activity.

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the biggest killer of men, women and children in the United States and sitting too much puts you at a higher risk of getting a cardiovascular disease. The best way to combat cardiovascular disease is to simply get up and get moving! The AHA recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity every week to lower cholesterol, lose weight and improve their overall health and well-being. Its for these reasons that National Walking Day is so important and why we encourage everyone in the Springfield Virginia area to participate in it.


Sheehy Ford of Springfield Takes on the Step Challenge!

At Sheehy Ford of Springfield, we’ll be participating in National Walking Day by going through the entire mile long course the AHA set up at Springfield Town Center and by taking part in the Sheehy Auto Stores Step Challenge. The Sheehy Step Challenge is a walking competition amongst all 22 of our Sheehy stores to see which store can rack up the most steps. The winner of the step challenge will win bragging rights and a gift basket full heart healthy snacks and treats.

We are so excited to be participating in National Walking Day again and hope to see members of our local community at Springfield Town Center on Wednesday April 3rd!
