Why is walking so good for you? Walking has the lowest drop-out rate of any sport. Walking briskly can lower your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes as much as running. All three conditions are risk factors for heart disease and stroke — and you can do something about them. Learn more about walking at ArtPrize.
