Start a Walk: Become a Walk Champion!

Thank you for your interest in increasing the health and happiness of your community! 

  • Walk with a Doc chapters led by physicians.

Since 2005, we’ve helped physicians, medical students, healthcare professionals and community leaders like you launch walking programs around the world. Our communities offer free walking groups throughout the year.  Walks begin with a brief discussion on a current health topic and then participants enjoy a walk and conversation.

It is our honor to share all we’ve learned over the years through our turn-key and sustainable program so you, the Walk Champion, can hit the ground running walking!

We are here to support you – every step of the waywith the tools you need to start up and maintain a life-changing effort powered by physical activity, health education, social connection, and nature.

Start a new chapter in your area and receive all of the tools above for as little as $650. If cost is a barrier for you or your team, we have several funding options to help!

To date, over 130 chapters have received scholarship funding thanks to the generous support of our donors and sponsors!
