Related. Max Bupa Health Insurance announced the launch of Max Bupa Walk for Health 2013 in Delhi and Mumbai. Max Bupa Walk for Health is a health initiative that aims to motivate people to incorporate walking as an exercise into their daily routine. This will be the second edition of the calendar event which saw response from 18,000 people in 2012. The event will be held three categories – adults,children and elderly. They will pledge their allegiance to include walking as an integral part of their lives. This year the distance for each category will be 5 kms walk for adults and avid walkers and 2 kms walk for senior citizens and children. Max Bupa Walk for Health 2013 is focused on Delhi and Mumbai,as owing to a sedentary lifestyle,people living in these metros are more prone to stress and lead an unhealthy life. Prominent as the IT/Telecom and BFSI hubs of India,the people in these cities work long hours which leaves them with hardly any spare time to exercise. Bupas global research in 13 countries has revealed that high stress level,unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyle has high negative impact on peoples health. Speaking about the initiative,Manasije Mishra,CEO,Max Bupa Health Insurance,said,We believe that if we can get people to change their lifestyles and start walking in these cities then we can make a significant impact on the health of our fellow citizens. A Max Bupa research shows that walking is the most preferred form of exercise with 56 per cent of people who exercise,opting for it, Manasije added.
