Please give Dr. Norris a big high five next time you see him, as he recently completed the Disney 1/2 marathon!
Happy 2018!!! This is a new year to continue our WWAD walks. Dr. Norris and his walkers will be continuing to walk for the next 6 months. We will take the summer months off and start back up again in the fall. Please add these 2018 dates to your calendars:
Get ready to meet and greet and to burn off a few calories. Bring family, friends, your dog, baby strollers, and a happy smile. We will provide water bottles and fruit. Looking forward to seeing all of you at our Winter and Spring WWAD walks!!!
Stay Happy, Healthy, and Hydrated!
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.
