Fun Walk have always played a big part in all the people of Oregon, Fun walk festival benefits the food and friends on wheels and Senior Meals Program. The event will start from Ashland Senior Center through Ashland Nature Park back to Ashland Senior Center. The event is open for everyone.

Fun Walk does not only benefit the organization for seniors, walking itself also benefit the participant. Walking is the simplest form of exercise. It is cost free and very easy to do. Walking shows great result when done regularly. Walking is a natural way of trimming down weight. It includes no diet pill most of all no surgery needed to give result.

Walking can transform your health. Professionals now claims that taking roughly10,000 steps a day, sets of a chain reaction to health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced risk for heart disease, and better odds of reducing the risk of breast cancer.

Does 10,000 step sound too much? A little viewpoint: It translates into 4.5 to five miles, or an equivalent of an hour of walk. Still a bit too much? Try breaking it to shorter bits: Use the stairs instead of the elevator, run errand with foot and no taxis. A 30 min. walk before breakfast, a 20 min walk while taking a break at the office and another before dinner. Or just simply commit to getting up once an hour, every hour throughout the day, and try moving for five minutes.

However you breakdown the steps, there could only be one tremendous result: a slimmer, more lively you. 60 minutes of walking you can burn 300 to 500 additional calories. Keep it up for ten days and you’ll automatically lose a pound, keeping it for a year and you’ll lose 35 pounds without a minute of dieting.

Fun Walk is one simple way to start a walking habit; it is helping others at the same time. The event benefits others through walking. Fun Walks builds friendship and self esteem. So stop being a coach potato. Start walking and you’ll definitely go a long way.
