There’s less than a week to go until Manchester City Football Club and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) host the ‘City.Heart.Walk’ at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 30 March.
From all corners of the City, women are uniting to lead the fight for every heartbeat in Manchester. But it’s not too late to join them by signing-up today.
Heart and circulatory disease is one of the biggest killers in women. The ‘City.Heart.Walk’ aims to highlight the risks of heart disease and provide a fun and empowering way to get active and help Manchester take its first steps towards a healthier heart.
The BHF recommends walking up to 10,000 steps a day. To start people on their 10,000 step journey we have created three walking routes designed to encourage women of all ages and abilities to get moving:
Route 1 - 2,000 steps
Route 2 - 4,000 steps
Route 3 - 6,000 steps
If you want to do even more steps on the day - go for it!
With activity stations, pamper sessions, a kids zone and some famous faces to cheer you on, it’s the perfect way to spend Mother's Day with the family.
All participants will be given free goody bags including pedometers, BHF recipe cards and much more. All guests will also get a free ticket to watch the likes of Toni Duggan and Stephanie Houghton from Manchester City Women’s Football Club play a pre-season friendly match against Aston Villa at the Regional Athletics Arena, Etihad Stadium which starts at 2pm.
The partnership is designed to raise awareness of heart disease and inspire people of all ages to improve their lifestyle so they can lower their risk of developing this potentially life-threatening disease. Both organisations will draw upon their unique expertise to run community events and offer free guidance and support to local residents on topics such as quitting smoking, cooking healthy meals and doing more physical activity.
