Local Charity Programs
The Walking Company has a long standing tradition of giving back to our local communities. When developing Walking for Hope, we recognized that fact that there are numerous local programs actively involved in the fight against cancer. Our goal is to provide the financial support needed to allow these programs to succeed with their missions through a sponsorship or donation with proceeds from our Walking for Hope program.
Do you know...
Research has consistently shown that women who exercise for most of their lives have reduced risk of breast cancer. Women who started exercising regularly when they were young seem to receive the most preventive benefits. But recent exercise can help as well according to some studies.
Researchers recommend exercising for 20 to 30 minutes, four to five times a week. Even moderate levels of regular, long-term physical activity help to reduce breast cancer risk.
Long-term, regular exercise has benefits beyond reducing risk of breast cancer. It also cuts down the chances of diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease and stroke.
