National Walk to Work Day is celebrated on April 05, 2024. It is held the first Friday of April in the USA and was declared in 2004 by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy G. Thompson. The day encourages Americans to walk to work. You should walk on this day at least 30 minutes.

Sustained walking sessions for a minimum period of thirty to sixty minutes a day, five days a week, with the correct walking posture, reduce health risks and have various overall health benefits, such as reducing the chances of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, anxiety and depression. Life expectancy is also increased even for individuals suffering from obesity or high blood pressure. Walking also increases bone health, especially strengthening the hip bone, and lowering the more harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and raises the more useful good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.
