Walking Programs

Program: Walking Programs  

There are countless ways you can get active, but walking has the lowest dropout rate of them all! It’s the simplest positive change you can make to improve your heart health.

Research has shown that walking at least 30 minutes a day can help you:

  • Reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
  • Improve your blood pressure, blood sugar levels and blood lipid profile
  • Maintain your body weight and lower the risk of obesity
  • Enhance your mental well-being
  • Reduce your risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduce your risk of breast and colon cancer
  • Reduce your risk of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes

There really are so many benefits for such a simple activity!

Who can participate? All Pima County employees
How to get started:

You may join any of the walking programs & events listed.


Pima County, the City of Tucson and the Tucson Convention Center (TCC) recognize that healthy habits benefit City of Tucson and Pima County employees. To encourage employees to walk during their break times, TCC will open Exhibit halls A, B and C for employee-only walking.

Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 
April 1 through October 31 during non-event days.

To minimize the impact on the TCC budget, lighting will be kept at a minimum and air conditioning will remain at the normal level during non-use times. Walkers are asked to help keep the area clean and to not access other parts of the venue via the glass interior doors or arena tunnel doors.

TCC will publish a monthly calendar of the available walking days.  See Calendar Section below to view non-walking days.

TCC guest services in the administrative office will also have the calendar, which is subject to change without notice based upon TCC’s business needs.

  • The restrooms in hall B will be open for use.
  • Please do not leave any trash in the exhibit halls.
  • Please refrain from accessing other parts of the building

    Each lap around the Exhibit hall is roughly 500 steps. You would need to make four laps around the hall to walk 1 mile.
