Did you know walking is critical for keeping the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in our body healthy? In fact, this simple act—getting out and moving—can be the key to prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases of the cardiovascular system. Especially for those with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and other vascular conditions. STEPember Vascular Health Challenge launches during PAD Awareness Month. Join UBMD Surgery and pledge to walk 60 miles for vascular health.
STEPtember is an opportunity for vascular surgeons across the country and the world to engage with their communities and spread the word about the importance of vascular health. Walking affects many aspects of cardiovascular health, from PAD to hypertension to slowing the growth of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).
UBMD Vascular Surgery physicians formed a team called University at Buffalo. Help raise awareness, raise your personal step count, and help us to raise our $60,000 goal to support low-income patients in exercise therapy programs. The donation cost is $60 per person, and the goal is to walk 60 miles within September. That’s less than 5,000 steps per day!
