Since 2010 Walk With Your Doc has been spreading the word to British Columbians about the health benefits of daily walking. Each year, during the week of May 10, the World Health Organization’s international Move for Health Day, doctors across BC host walking events for their patients and often for their community too. To date, over 200 walks have been organized, with hundreds of doctors and thousands of people participating. Walkers receive a free pedometer (while supplies last) to help track their steps and continue their healthier lifestyle.

BC doctors prescribe walking to patients as a preventive measure against chronic illness. Please read our Why Walk to learn the associated health benefits of walking. ...

Walk With Your Doc is a grass roots initiative of Doctors of BC’s Council on Health Promotion (COHP). The first event was started in Vancouver by Dr Ron Wilson, chair of the Athletic and Recreation Committee, who wanted to make a meaningful difference for his patients in a simple and fun way. The idea took hold, and COHP turned it into an annual event. Each year Walk With Your Doc grows in numbers and in 2014 we held a record-breaking 58 walks, with 300 doctors and 2,700 participants.

On May 7th your are invited to join the doctors of the Comox Valley to participate in this free and informative walk. The events is starting at 10am at 2799 Mansfield Dr with information booths and a warm up. The walk will begin at 11am.
