The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) promotes physical activity in children to promote bone strength, muscle growth, and a physical and psychological well-being. Our physicians believe that throughout the stages of development, children should take part in structured and unstructured physical activity. We want our patients to commit to a lifelong, conscious decision to be active.
Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your day than on your feet making strides to help you and your children improve your general health to live longer! While you and your children may walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by our pediatricians.
This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the world. 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.
