Step this way!

Let’s talk—about walking. Exercise is good for your back, and walking is a great way to keep your back healthy and strong. It’s also a great excuse to take part in Take a Walk Day Thursday Aug. 21—and maybe win some cool prizes.

Chances are, you’re going to be walking somewhere, anyway—to the store, to the park, to the bus stop—so why not register for Take a Walk Day and become eligible to win one of several iPod Nanos up for grabs?

We want everybody and their dogs to take part—yes, walking your pooch counts, too!—so feel free to spread the word. Tell your friends! Tell your family!
