Walk with Doc
Northern Hearts Celebrates 1st Nipigon Walk with Doc
The first Nipigon Walk with Doc was held on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 from 12-1pm starting at the Nipigon Marina.
Dr. Dhaliwal, Dr. Scott and Dr. Henderson, along with nurse practitioners Joshua Belanger and Grace Fox joined the participants for a short social walk along the Nipigon-Red Rock Trail in an effort to help build and maintain healthy lifestyles.
Laurie Berube insured the participants were physically ready by leading them in a brief warm-up exercise.
Thanks to everyone who participated and helped make the first ever Nipigon Walk with Doc an enjoyable and memorable experience.
For 20 years, Northern Hearts, a local non-profit organization has been organizing a “Walk with Doc” program for 2 weeks in June to encourage healthy and active lifestyles for participants. Walkers are invited to attend for an opportunity to enjoy a social walk with local medical professionals to discuss their health and get some exercise.
Thank you to all the participants, volunteers, medical professionals and host organizations who came out to support our “Walk with Doc” from June 19th to June 29th and made it a fun and enjoyable time.
