Healthwatch Swindon have supplied us with the following information:
BBC Wiltshire have launched their campaign to get us walking this summer.
The collective aim is for people to walk the boundary length of Wiltshire – 240 miles. Every morning on BBC Wiltshire’s breakfast show they will be adding up the total number of miles walked by listeners.
Get fit for free! Donate your miles to their ongoing tally. Use a mobile phone app or contact them to get your own BBC Wiltshire pedometer to track your distance.
May is National Walking Month:
National Walking Month is a campaign to promote the benefits of walking and to get everyone walking, no matter what your level of fitness is. Walking is simple and free and one of the easiest ways to be more active, lose weight and become healthier.
