Please give Dr. Norris a big high five next time you see him, as he recently completed the Disney 1/2 marathon!
Our Clearwater Chapter is growing and thriving even during this time of “Safe at Home”! Continue walking throughout the summer months and keep safe and healthy. We will be taking the summer off with walking as a group and start back at the end of August. Our next and last walk before the break is June 13th. Dr. Norris and staff are looking forward to seeing you out walking with us….. enjoying the great Florida outdoors. Consistency is the key to make walking a “Lifestyle Habit”. Keep moving, keep challenging yourself, keep getting healthier and keep the healthy spirit! The dates for the Fall season walks will be posted at the end of summer. Dedicate this summer to “walking” with friends and family for fun and fitness!!!

About the Walk
According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians.
This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the country. 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.
