Blue Circle Walk

Welcome to the Blue Circle Walk, an initiative designed to encourage the people of Hamilton to incorporate walking into their daily routines and walk around our beautiful city streets, either before work in the morning, during lunch breaks, or after work in the evening.

Discover the Blue Circles

As you walk, you’ll notice blue circles marked along the route. These circles symbolize our global commitment to fighting diabetes and represent our collective effort towards achieving a healthier community. The Blue Circle is recognized worldwide as a symbol of diabetes awareness and advocacy.

Why Walk?

Walking is one of the simplest and most effective forms of exercise. Here are some compelling reasons to incorporate daily walks into your routine:

Improves Cardiovascular Health: Regular walking strengthens the heart and improves circulation, reducing the risk of heart disease.
Controls Blood Sugar Levels: Walking helps regulate blood sugar, which is crucial for preventing and managing diabetes.
Lowers Blood Pressure: Consistent walking can help reduce high blood pressure, enhancing overall heart health.
Decreases Bad Cholesterol: Walking helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol.
Aids in Weight Management: Walking burns calories, assisting in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
Boosts Mood: Physical activity releases endorphins, improving mood and reducing stress and anxiety.
