Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
People all over America, and in Baton Rouge, are taking big steps toward healthy hearts today.
In honor of National Walking Day, Our Lady of the Lake paired up with the American Heart Association to get people on their feet.
Dozens of people showed up at the hospital to walk a one-mile trail this morning.
The goal - to spend 30 minutes walking
This is especially important here in Baton Rouge, where around 33 percent of deaths are related to cardiovascular disease.
