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.

78 years young, Cô Bảy (aka Mrs. #007) is so hipster!

With cool shades and a matchie-matchie scarf, that blends with the ‘flames’ on her Hot-Wheels, Cô Bảy whips out her rose-colored iPhone6 to show us photos of her 8 adult children and some grandchildren. She’s our newest “Hometown Heroine!”

May Cô Bảy (Mrs. #007) awaken “The Force” within all of us … to “LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!” 10644205_10201100220945196_576986891522074052_oWWAD youngsters having trouble keeping up with Mrs. Bảy
