Bupa has teamed up with the Ramblers to help
people live healthier lives through walking.

working to help everyone realise the pleasures and benefits of walking, and to
enhance and protect the places where people walk, whether rural or urban.
Walking can help people to reach the recommended
healthy level of physical activity of 150 minutes of moderate exercise over a
week in bouts of 10 minutes or more. The many benefits of regular walking
include stress reduction, protecting against a number of illnesses and boosting

is an excellent way to do that. We hope that many of our members get involved
with the Ramblers and start enjoying the benefits of walking"
