Nichole Galloway, respiratory care office coordinator, left, and Rachel Jarvis, exercise physiologist, walk laps Wednesday around Memorial Hospital of Carbondale during their lunch break. The two said they try to walk several laps of the heart path — a 0.7 mile walk starting at the Cancer Care Center — every day. “If we don’t come here, we do walking videos in my office,” Galloway said. The first Wednesday in April is the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day in which employees are encouraged to get out of their office and walk. Jarvis said walking at least thirty minutes a day could reduce the risk of heart disease.
