Walking path designated in Tosa research park

The American Heart Assocation and UnitedHealthcare of Wisconsin recently teamed up to designate Milwaukee County Research Park as the location of Milwaukee’s first Start! Walking Path.
"UnitedHealthcare is leading the way in prioritizing the health of their employees so we find it fitting to have its team unveil Milwaukee’s first-ever Start! Walking Path, which will help promote physical activity in our community," said Sara Alger, executive director, American Heart Association. The designation ceremony was held on Wednesday, April 7 in celebration of the National, Start! Walking day.
"UnitedHealthcare is honored to be a part of such an energizing and much-needed initiative like Start!," said Wendy Arnone, chief executive officer, UnitedHealthcare of Wisconsin. "It’s exciting to see our organizations work together to make positive strides to improve the health of our employees and the communities they live in."
Employees at UnitedHealthcare’s Wauwatosa office are currently participating in wellness activities such as a "Biggest Loser" contest and also regularly take part in walking groups, fitness classes and Weight Watcher classes. The offices also feature vending machines with healthy eating options. More than 100 UnitedHealthcare employees took part in the walk around Milwaukee County Research Park.  The Start! Walking path will offer a great opportunity for Milwaukee residents to use when it’s time for a walk.
