At Walk with a Doc, we believe in making health and happiness accessible to all. Bridgette’s story exemplifies the transformative power that your support can have on creating healthier futures.
Bridgette was struggling with diabetes and other health issues when she learned about her local Macon, Georgia chapter of Walk with a Doc from co-leaders Dr. Harry Strothers and Mary Hoey. They challenged her to start walking and document the steps and miles she completed.
By attending the Walk with a Doc local events, participating in global walk challenges, and receiving inspiration and health tips from the Walk with a Doc community, Bridgette was motivated by the connections she made and the health information she learned.
Bridgette continues to thrive as she takes charge of her own health. She says, “It was engaging, fun, and a remarkable way for me to increase the variety in my fitness journey. Through my efforts with Walk with a Doc, its many resources offered, and my own tenacity and resilience, I was able to cut my A1C in half and lose some weight along the way.”
When you invest $0.50 a day, $180 a year — you make it possible for people like Bridgette to take that first step to make critical lifestyle changes. Every dollar makes a difference in creating a healthier future.
