Thank you to all of you who walked with us during the past 9 months. We have had many walkers come out supporting a healthy life style with incorporating walking as a form of exercise. We have decided to take the month of July off due to many of us being out of town. Please continue to walk on your own and encourage each other to keep going. I will be posting dates when we are starting back up. Dr. Norris will be looking forward to seeing all of you at the end of the summer.
Stay Hydrated 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.
