Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- What is the single most effective exercise to achieve heart health? If you said walking, you'd be right. Sanford and the Walk This Way program kicked off a month long walking campaign downtown.

Walkers gathered at Sanford Health and walked a mile and half route around the hospital to help promote heart health. Heart disease is the country's number one killer.

The Heart Walk is an effort to help reduce that with just 20 minutes of walking a day.

Michael Gibbs - Vice President of Heart, Sanford: "It's the easiest way to stay fit. It doesn't cost money and so far as there isn't a blizzard or incliment weather outside and even sometimes when there is tough weather outside, it's something everyone is capable of doing."

The Red River Valley Heart Walk will take place April 20 at Scheels Arena starting at 9 AM.
