Event description

Description

Walk with Mayor Schaaf to help stop heart disease in its tracks! A National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention initiative, Move with the Mayor is hosted in ten cities and Oakland is the largest California city to host the event. In honor of World Heart Day, the Mayor will be holding walking and dancing events each week in September to promote wellness.

Come dance, eat snacks, and enjoy our vibrant Downtown!

Research shows that walking as little as 30 minutes a day can significantly reduce one’s risk for heart disease and stroke. The Move with the Mayor Challenge works to show that even busy people, like the Mayor, make time for their heart health.

Weekly events consist of a 30-minute walk with the Mayor around downtown Oakland culminating in an event the final week of September that includes line dancing, other healthy movement classes, food, and a prize drawing.
