SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – America’s Walking Club is celebrating the recent opening of its national headquarters in the King William neighborhood to coincide with National Walking Week April 1-7.
Henry Rosales, America’s Walking Club CEO, says it’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends, and it’s good for your health.
“We’re here today to help ourselves so that we can live better, healthier lives and pass that on to our children and grandchildren.,” said Rosales. “We can teach them about the importance of health and exercise when they’re young so it becomes a habit.”
