The Trumbull Health Department is celebrating National Walking Day on Wednesday, April 1. The department is inviting the public to take a walk with First Selectman Vicki Tesoro at 12:30 p.m. starting at the Town Hall.

National Walking Day was established by the American Heart Association to remind people of the health benefits of walking. According to the American Heart Association, research shows that walking can have a significant impact on health by lowering a person’s chances of heart disease.
