MARIETTA, Ga., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Geritol® Multivitamin, a trusted multivitamin for men and women, will "walk the walk" as a proud sponsor of the American Heart Association's (AHA) Denver Heart & Stroke Walk on June 1, 2013. Erin Palinski-Wade, RD, CDE, LDN, Geritol's expert and nationally-recognized nutrition and fitness author, says "walking is one of the best and easiest activities to promote good heart health which can significantly lower your risks for heart disease, stroke and diabetes when done consistently each week, and Geritol is proud to take this step to support AHA walk participants."
"As a supporter of good health and a promoter of enhanced vitality, Geritol wants to help walkers make every step count by providing 1000 free pedometers at the Geritol sponsorship booth so participants can track their progress and remember to take daily steps towards improving or maintaining a healthy lifestyle," says Cigdem Topalli, Brand Manager at Meda Consumer Healthcare, maker of Geritol®. Walkers and runners alike can also stop by for a free bottle of the 40ct Geritol® Multivitamin and coupons while supplies last.
"These walks are a great way to give back to the community while enjoying important exercise and building a healthy attitude about wellness," adds Palinski-Wade. "If just a few more people start to walk more routinely as a result of taking part in this effort, it not only benefits the American Heart Association, but the walker's health, as well."
To support finding your right balance and optimum vitality, Geritol® Multivitamin contains twelve essential vitamins and minerals close to 100% RDA (recommended daily allowance) because well-balanced multivitamins like Geritol can be safer to your health and better tolerated.
