Research shows that walking consistently throughout the day and aiming for 10,000 daily steps may help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, improve blood pressure, enhance mental well-being, and help maintain a healthy body weight.
UnitedHealthcare’s Walk for a Cause Corporate Challenge invites businesses across Metro Atlanta to raise funds for charity by living their healthiest lives and walking more.
Companies that sign up at www.beltlinewalks.com and join the challenge will encourage their employees to walk the Atlanta Beltline and other places and log their steps from August 1 through October 31.
At the end of the challenge, UnitedHealthcare will donate $10,000 to local Boys & Girls Clubs in the name of the company with the most employees participating in each of four company size categories.
Individuals who step up to the challenge and pledge to walk are eligible for a chance to win one of various prizes including gift cards, free yoga classes and more.
