South Mississippians take part in National Start Walking Day

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Today is the day the American Heart Association wants you to get moving. The need is especially great in Mississippi since we are the most obese state in the nation.

Several South Mississippi businesses are encouraging their employees to take part in National Start Walking Day. Workers at the IP Casino, Resort & Spa will be among those out walking Wednesday morning. Click here to learn more about how to start a group at your workplace.

The purpose of the campaign is to get people across the country to be more physically active and help fight heart disease. WLOX News will have more on the walking campaign later today. You can learn more right now by visiting www.startwalkingnow.org.
