Dayton, Ohio

Program Information:

Looking for a fun way to increase your physical activity? Enjoy the peaceful scenery and jumpstart your fitness program by taking a stroll through beautiful RiverScape MetroPark! Join Dayton Children’s Hospital physicians for a healthy stroll and get some of your pediatric health questions answered. Walk With A Doc is open to all participants, and all fitness levels are welcome and encouraged to attend.

About Walk With A Doc:

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.
