Celebrating Our 19th Anniversary

In April of 2005, Dr. David Sabgir decided he’d had enough… Countless conversations with patients, telling them they needed to get more exercise had led nowhere. He had a crazy idea to invite patients to join him for a walk in the park. The rest is history. If you’d like to get us a birthday present and help the movement spread to other communities, please consider a $19 donation in honor of 19 years.

About Walk with a Doc

Walk with a Doc is a nonprofit that was started in 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio. Initially aimed at helping patients get more physical activity, the benefits of the program go fay beyond a simple walk! The opportunity to build friendships within the community, spend time in nature, and receive free health education in a relaxed setting is an all-in-one “prescription” for better health.
