Event description

Description

Get up, get out and get movin’ with Greater Hartford Wellness and Dr. Kathleen Webb, PsyD! Join Dr. Webb and others for a walk in the park on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at 9am (and every second Saturday of the month). If you have been wanting to add more physical activity into your life gradually, this is the event for you. Walk at your own pace and enjoy the camaraderie of others who share similar goals.

During our first walk, Dr. Webb will be discussing barriers to movement and how to overcome them in a brief presentation (no more than 5 minutes) before our walk. You’ll be ahead of the game just by showing up!

Walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome; there is no cost to attend and pre-registration is NOT required. Bring your family and friends and get active together. To respect everyone’s time, the walk will begin exactly at 9am.

This walk is part of the national movement, Walk with a Doc (WWAD). WWAD was formed by a cardiologist who decided to not only “talk the talk” but “walk the walk” with his patients. Dr. David Sabgir decided that the best way to help his patients exercise more was to host a community walk where patients could gather, hear a small presentation from the doc and walk for about an hour. WWAD has expanded to include locations nationwide and Dr. Webb is pleased to begin these walks to serve the Farmington Valley community. Each walk will have a theme of the day and occasionally, a guest speaker/walker. For more information about WWAD, visit http://walkwithadoc.org.
