Walk to Work Day this Friday is now in its 18thyear and raises money and awareness for Diabetes Australia.

Regular walking has been linked with a reduction in the riskof developingdiabetes.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald has called on people across the Hunter to take the healthy option and walk to work thisFriday.

“Walking is a free and relatively easy way to improve your health and reduce your chance of developing chronic conditions like diabetes,” Mr MacDonald said.

“There’s no reason to feel afraid of changing your routine a little to get in some extra exercise.

“One idea might be to hop off public transport earlier or park the car a bit further away from work so you can get a few extra minutes of walking into your day.

“Australians are living longer and chronic diseases such as diabetes are on the rise so it is vital we make exercise and good nutrition a part of our daily lives.”

Mr MacDonald said spring provided the perfect platform to be more active.

“It’s the time of year we are all looking to shape up for summer and that can start by simply walking more,” he said.

“Walking is such an easy thing to incorporate into your daily routine, so put on some comfy shoes, get out in the fresh air, and enjoy Walk to Work Day.”

According to Diabetes Australia, 280 Australians develop diabetes every day.
