CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is going on a walk in hopes of getting West Virginia workers to add some physical activity to their daily routines.
Tomblin will join state, Kanawha County and city of Charleston employees on a 30-minute stroll Wednesday as part of National Walk at Lunch Day.
Tomblin's walk will take place at noon along Kanawha Boulevard starting at Greenbrier Street in Charleston. A separate walk will begin on the boulevard at Capitol Street.
In Parkersburg, similar walks will be held at noon starting from Bi-Centennial Park and from the former Windmill Restaurant.
The walks are being promoted by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield West Virginia.
