This Wednesday is National Start! Walking Day. What’s National Start! Walking Day you ask? Well, it’s a great day to start walking! The American Heart Association is hosting the annual event where adults nationwide pledge to Start! walking and become more active and heart healthy, especially in the workplace. Here in Chicago the AHA will be hosting a rally at the Thompson Center inviting everyone, but specifically employees in the loop, to come down and join them. The walk will start at Union Station and end at the Thompson Center via Adams and LaSalle streets. At the Thompson Center the NBC fitness team will be doing mini-workouts, music, giveways, photo opps, and Kim & Scott’s will be sampling our Whole Grain Traditional Bavarian pretzels! Our Whole Grain Pretzels are a perfect fit for this event as research has discovered that adding whole grain foods to your heart healthy diet will help reduce your risk of heart disease. If you’re in the Chicago area, be sure to stop by our table! We’d love to take a photo with you on your heart healthy walk and post it on our blog!
We’re also doing a fun little contest too! If you stop by our table and tell us this secret code word, we’ll give the first 10 people a free “Get Twisted” t-shirt! The code word is: Pretzel Power
