It’s no April Fool’s Joke. The American Heart Association is asking Tennesseans to take a step, or steps, toward heart health and go for a walk on Wednesday for National Walking Day. Tennesseans who want to participate are encouraged to take a heart-healthy walk and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #18KMinutes. According to the Tennessee Department of Heath, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the state.
