walk with a doc

Walk with a Doc is open to community members of all abilities. Participation is free and pre-registration is not required. Walkers will enjoy a 1-hour, refreshing and rejuvenating walk with a doctor and/or other healthcare professional, who will provide support to participants and answer questions during the walk. Participants who commit to walking will get a free t-shirt!


Walk with a Doc began in 2005 by a Columbus, Ohio cardiologist, Dr. David Sabgir. What started as an invitation to his patients to join him on a walk created an international movement where its reach now extends all around the globe with over 500 chapters.
