Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes

Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes

Website: Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes is a Corpus Christi tradition. Affectionately called "Dancing Through Downtown", our event begins and ends at Whataburger Field. The walk itself is just under 4 miles with live entertainment all along the route. There are also numerous water stations and rest stops for our patrons. Those walkers with diabetes (type 1, type 2, or gestational) are identified as Red Striders. Red Striders are celebrated throughout the walk and at the pre and post event and are the reason why we walk. Our walk is a free community event where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association, to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. This includes raising both awareness and funds for the Association. As a whole, 78% of the American Diabetes Association's total annual expenses go towards research, information, advocacy, and public awareness activities. Continue reading >>

Walking For Diabetes, Depression, Insomnia And More

Find the right path to treat your condition by Sara Altshul, AARP Bulletin , March 2018|Comments: 0 Walking can help your blood pressure, sleep patterns, mood and more. A walk is a proven way to treat a host of ailments, but not everyone should take the same path. Here's what the experts recommend: High blood pressure: 25-35 minutes; moderate pace How walking helps:It can lower blood pressure , according to a 2010 review of 27 trials on the topic.

Walking Rx:Shoot for at least 1.75 miles at 3 to 4.5 mph most days of the week to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, says Paul T. Williams, a life sciences researcher at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, Calif. How walking helps:It strengthens the muscles that support joints, helps you shed pounds and reduces joint stiffness. In a 2015 review of 54 studies, researchers concluded that walking, like other exercise, was as effective as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain relief . Walking Rx:Leigh F. Callahan, associate director of the Thurston Arthritis Research Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, recommends starting with five minutes of walking and building up to 30 total minutes per day at once or in separate walks for five days per week. If the pain is worse two hours after the walk than it was before the walk started, take a less intense walk the next time. How walking helps:Walking helps preserve bone. Walking Rx:Try to walk 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Three 10-minute walks a day are as bone-strengthening as one 30-minute walk, says Andrea J. Singer, M.D., of the National Osteoporosis Foundation. How walking fast helps:It increases the Continue reading >>
