Menchie’s Sponsors LA Heart Walk 2015

Fro-yo girl here. Today was National Walking Day and Americans are invited to walk at least 30 minutes today. The American Heart Association started the Heart Walk to raise awareness for the importance of physical activity.

Menchie’s was a local sponsor of today’s Los Angeles Heart Walk, along with Union Bank and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital.

The festivities started at 11:30 AM at Union Bank Plaza (445 S Figueroa St., Los Angeles). Various speakers extolled the benefits of walking/physical activity. Several health organizations were present – you could get your blood pressure checked and learn about CPR. Three furry mascots were present, including Menchie, a heart and the LA Galaxy mascot, Cozmo.

Cozmo is a fast walker. He led the walkers for a mile long walk. Menchie is a much slower walker (but a cuter dancer). Walkers collected checkmarks at four stations. Afterwards, those who completed the walk received a free t-shirt, bottled water, Subway sandwich and a mini cup of Menchie’s (vanilla, chocolate or pineapple). 
The t-shirt has the sponsor logos, including Menchie’s, on the back.

Free froyo is a good motivation to walk!

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
