White House + Walk with a Doc

We are excited to announce that this week in a White House ceremony to celebrate the new partners joining the White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities, Walk with a Doc’s commitment was added to the movement! 

The White House Challenge is a nationwide call-to-action to stakeholders across all of society to make bold commitments to advance President Biden’s goal to end hunger and reduce diet-related diseases by 2030—all while reducing disparities. 

Our Commitment

Walk with a Doc has set a very bold goal to expand our walk chapters, reaching 1,200 communities across the United States by the end of 2025!

Why is this so important? Why is this our passion?

The leading cause of death globally is heart disease and the WHO estimates that non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer are on the rise. Many deaths may be prevented by lifestyle changes such as walking or other physical activities and eating a healthy diet. In fact, 150 minutes of exercise each week (or 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week) is critical to improving your health and preventing premature death. We can do something about this!

Together, we can empower thousands of people to take steps toward better health.

How can you help support the commitment?
