Heart Foundation Walking is calling on all participants to bring a beloved bloke to their walking group or encourage them to download the app this Men’s Health Week (June 10 – 16)
Over 30% of adult men in Australia have high cholesterol and over 60% are overweight or obese. Walking is a great way for males to reduce these risk factors as well as creating opportunities for socialising and meeting new people.
Every male that registers to the program between June 10 and June 30 will go in the draw to win a $200 Red Balloon voucher. See the terms and conditions here.
Well done to everyone who took part in the MotivApril challenge. If you increased the amount of steps you did in April, you're already a winner!
We asked our app walkers to reach 250,000 steps and our group walkers to walk eight group walks between 1 and 30 April to go in the running to win a $500 Bunnings voucher. Along the way, every step walkers took boosted their heart health.
Walking and family life go hand in hand - and walking is one of the best ways to fit exercise into family time. We're encouraging parents and families to be part of Heart Foundation Walking and benefit from regular exercise, social connections and improved mental health.
Heart Foundation Walking rewards walkers who have increased the amount they walk each day, helped others to start or keep walking, or helped to share the benefits of walking with the wider community. We also want to recognise those who have increased their walking as part of the Prime Minister's One million steps.
Nominations have closed and winners will be notified soon.
How do you capture a feeling in a photograph? That's our challenge to you in this year's photo competition. We want you to capture how you ‘walk yourself happy’. Take either a solo photo or one striding along with your walking friends, and capture the fantastic feeling walking gives you. Make sure you or the people in the photo are walking and you’ll be in the chance to be part of our competition. Competition is now closed. Winners will be announced soon and featured in our 2019 HFW calendar.
