Walk with Doc


June 14, 2017

Northern Hearts is inviting the community to “Walk with Doc”. Founded 14 years ago, Walk with Doc is a program to encourage, build, and maintain healthy and active life-long habits in cooperation with local physicians and organizations.

The walks take place throughout the month of June and feature a local doctor and local health-oriented organization to encourage walkers on their way and to connect and educate participants about active living and community health resources.

Open to any and all members of the public, the walks are about 2 kilometres and begin at 7 PM, Monday to Thursday at Birch Point Park on Boulevard Lake. Everyone is welcome.

Upcoming Walks with Doc:
