What Happens During a Walk? People of all ages, fitness levels, and backgrounds are welcome to these free, ongoing events. After a brief health discussion from a health care provider, participants will spend the rest of the time enjoying a healthy walk at their own pace. They are encouraged to ask health questions and socialize with others in a fun, relaxed setting.
Why Walk? Walking is one of the single most important things we can do for our health - it’s good for your heart, brain, bones, lungs, muscles, joints, and even helps prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. See 100 reasons to walk at www.walkwithadoc.org/why-walk.
