Capital & Coast District Health Board is getting behind an initiative to get people out of their cars and into their walking shoes, as an easy way of getting exercise.
Tomorrow is Walk 2 Work Day, which is encouraging people to take the old fashioned mode of transport to their workplace.
C&C DHB staff who take part in the initiative will have the chance to win spot prizes as a reward for their choice to be active, says C&C DHB Travel Planner Jan Simmons.

We want more people walking and enjoying public spaces be they young or old, fast or slow, whether walking, sitting, commuting, shopping, between appointments, or out on the streets for exercise, for leisure or for pleasure.
