Walk with a Doc Program in Topeka
January 21 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am
This doctor-led group is a fun and safe place to hear briefly about an important health topic and enjoy a walk outside with a physician each month.
Join Dr. Casey Whale on Saturday, January 21st, as we learn about orthopedics and sports medicine. Participants should meet at the east side of Lee Arena at Washburn University.
The walk is open to the community. Participation is free and pre-registration is not required. And don’t worry – if it’s too cold, or snowing, we will move the walk indoors.
According to the American Heart Association, walking as little as 30 minutes a day can provide the following benefits:
Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels
Help maintain a healthy body weight and lower the risk of obesity
Enhance mental well-being
Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
Walk with a Doc (WWAD) is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire communities through movement and conversation. Topeka joins a growing list of communities worldwide that have started local Walk with a Doc programs. Learn more at www.walkwithadoc.org.
