Walk with Doc

Walk with Doc is Back!

 

For 19 years, Northern Hearts, a local non-profit organization has been organizing a “Walk with Doc” program during the month of June to encourage healthy and active lifestyles for participants. Walkers are invited to attend for an opportunity to enjoy a social walk with local doctors to discuss their health and get some exercise.

  • The Walk with Doc program will run throughout the month of June (6-30th).
  • Monday to Thursday, 7-8:30pm @ Marina Park (Celebration Circle – see map)
  • It will include all of the elements that make the Walk with Doc program a success, such as physician participation, daily walks, and chances to win a weekly prize!
  • Please come out and enjoy some social walking with physicians, local organizations, and other community members. Registration is not required.
Meet at the Celebration Circle across from the boat launch parking lot.

It is important to note that COVID-19 is still very present in the community and to make this event as safe as possible, we ask that you self-screen when you come to the event and wear your mask when gathered together before the Walk begins. For those uncomfortable with participating in an in-person event, or cannot make the Walk evenings, a virtual walk, similar to previous years will take place over virtual platforms (Facebook and Email) where participants can comment and post pictures featuring the walk they went on.

See the calendar below for a list of Doctors and Host Organizations for the June Walk.

Thank you to all the sponsors who have generously donated to support our Walk with Doc.
