Mayor Brown Celebrates National Walk@Lunch Day at Buffalo City Hall With Proclamation

Walk at Lunch

Buffalo, New York – Today Mayor Byron W. Brown and the City of Buffalo Wellness Committee joined hundreds of city employees for a 1.2 mile stroll around downtown Buffalo during lunch hour as part of National Walk@Lunch Day.  This annual event is an easy and fun way to encourage City of Buffalo employees and the community at large to practice healthy lifestyle habits.

“In our effort to continue to build healthy communities, it is critically important that we, as city employees, do our best to incorporate physical activity into our everyday lives” said Mayor Brown.  “We hope that this event can serve as a launching pad for city employees to make physical activity a daily habit.”

Following the rally, participants took a brisk walk around Niagara Square to Court Street, Court Street to Main Street, Main Street to W. Chippewa, W. Chippewa to Delaware and back to City Hall.   The walking route was approximately 1.2 miles long.

According to recent studies, walking is one of the best ways to stay healthy and keep your body in shape. Walking 30 to 60 minutes per day greatly reduces your risk of getting heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. By finding time to walk every day, people have reported having more energy and lowered stress levels.


The City of Buffalo’s Wellness Committee’s mission is to provide education and activities to City of Buffalo employees in order to make the pursuit of wellness a priority. Mayor Byron W. Brown and The City of Buffalo care deeply about employee health and wellness as studies demonstrate that healthy employees are happier and more engaged.
