Los Angeles Hosts Second Walk For a Healthy and Fit Nation

At last month’s IDEA World Fitness Convention, U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, M.D., M.B.A. led the second Surgeon General’s Walk for a Healthy and Fit Nation through downtown Los Angeles. The 30-min. walk started at the Los Angeles Convention Center and wound around the Staples Center and Nokia Theatre, with a goal of spreading awareness of ACSM’s Exercise is Medicine® initiative and promoting overall health and well-being for all Americans.

Others participating in the walk were Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Exercise is Medicine® chairwoman Dr. Pamela Peeke and IDEA Health & Fitness Association co-founders Peter and Kathie Davis. The first Walk for a Healthy and Fit Nation was held June 2 in Baltimore as part of ACSM’s 57th Annual Meeting and Inaugural World Congress on Exercise is Medicine. more
