According to the American Heart Association, walking offers excellent exercise for heart health by improving cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and energy levels. In addition, it can fight weight gain to improve heart health overall and can also reduce stress.
Every mural contains hidden “hearts” for viewers to locate. The acronym H.E.A.R.T. not only indicates Ramona as the geographic center of San Diego County, but reflects the character of the community. “H” for Historic and Hiking, “E” for Equine, “A” for Arts, Antiques and Agriculture, “R” for scenic rural vistas and drives, and “T” for Tasting of fine wines.
Participants who begin their walk at Ramona Family Naturals are requested to park on the street while they are walking to allow parking spaces for customers of the market. Everyone is also requested to follow distancing and mask guidelines as part of efforts to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Masks are required for measurement of blood pressure.
