Walk with your Doc is the Doctors of BC public health campaign that gets British Columbians moving, builds community relationships, and shows that BC doctors Walk the Talk.

Each year during the week of May 10 doctors host walking events in their communities. The walks are a fun and simple way to get patients and community members moving, and to discuss the benefits of daily activity with them in an informal, social setting.

Why Do Doctors Of BC Want To Walk With Their Patients?

Because it's the best prescription for health they can give you!

Did you know that walking can have the same health benefits of running? It’s true! Walking is a simple and fun way for people of all ages and abilities to feel good and be fit. By adding just 30 minutes of brisk walking to your daily routine, you could:

Lose Weight

A 30 minute brisk walk can burn about 150 extra calories a day. The more you walk and the quicker your pace, the more calories you burn.

Boost Immune System

Walking has the power to lower your risk of getting high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease.

Look & Feel Younger

Researchers have found that exercise can keep DNA healthy and young. How? By turning off the aging process in your chromosomes. In order to stay young, you have to keep your cells young.

Become Smarter

The mental effects of exercise are manifested much more rapidly than the physical. A study found that “exercise holds immediate benefits for affect and cognition in younger and older adults.”

A regularly active adult takes around 10,000 steps from morning until night. Participating in Walk With Your Doc means an additional 2,000- 3,000 steps.

Walk the Talk with your community!

Since 2010 Walk With Your Doc, has helped physicians and patients build healthier relationships. By hosting or attending a Walk With Your Doc, you are “walking the talk” about the benefits of daily activity while demonstrating to your patients that you care about their well being.

Doctors and event organizers will receive support every step of the way with posters, pamphlets, balloons, pedometers, communications support and much, much more.

Event organizers can host a walk by registering as a host. Doctors of BC will respond within 2 days.

The Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia is once again partnering with Doctors of BC for Walk With Your Doc, a great opportunity to connect with communities across the province to walk and talk about the benefits of being physically active.

BC physiotherapists invite all walk hosts to Ask a Physio to lead a warm up and stretch and walk side-by-side with them at any of the Walk With Your Doc events province-wide. Simply indicate your interest when you sign up to host a walk and PABC will get in touch.

If you are a physiotherapist and would like to join a walk, please contact PABC here.
