Please give Dr. Norris a big high five next time you see him, as he recently completed the Disney 1/2 marathon!

Thank you to all of you who who are faithfully coming out to walk with Dr. Norris. We are having fun walking and getting to know new friends while supporting walking as a healthy lifestyle. We have 3 more months of scheduled “Walk With A Doc’s”. This is a wonderful time to increase your steps and to challenge yourself to walk at a faster pace. Put on your calendar April 8th, May 13th, and June 10th. We will be taking the month of July off and resuming again in August. Looking forward to seeing you at our next WWAD!!

Stay Hydrated, Happy and healthy!!!

About the Walk

According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?

Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians.

This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the country. You don’t need any special gear and there are no special rules. Just put on a pair of comfortable shoes and walk alone, with friends, a partner or family or with a group. It’s a personal preference.
