Walk with a Doc Newsletter
Good morning! Hope that you are enjoying gorgeous weather in your neck of the woods. Today, we reach deep into our mailbag for 2 special letters. We received some just fantastic communication from our heroes Dr. Eric (Smiltneek) in Oshkosh, WI and Dr. Arlene Joy Vallejo in the Philippines.
“Hi Walk Friends,
We are back.
As Pete the Cat says “The sun is shining. The sky is bright. The birds are singing. We’re feeling alright!”
The crew is back after the long winter – a bunch of old friends and a few first timers.
Today’s question is why did you come today?
The most popular answer is it is good to exercise and exercise is more fun with friends.
The kid who was not a fan of being in the picture is actually a fan of walking with us, however.
He said walking with us is better than walking on a treadmill, because when he tried to walk on a treadmill he fell off and scraped his leg. He is said his leg hurt for a long time. So maybe our new tag line could be “walk with a doc, it is less painful than walking on a treadmill”
I would also like to email introduce you to my new friend Jessica – who is helping me with business development at Aurora. She has been wonderful and excited about my craziness so far and may be in touch about expanding to some other Oshkosh area schools (or sites) in the future.
Happy to be back,
PS – Wednesday’s health topic is worms (student requested) – and the word on the playground is that Charlie (thumbs up kid) is going to eat a worm during the walk. So stay tuned for that. (Our new marketing strategy – daring kids to do gross things)”
