Stories from May 2014

Rain or shine patients got moving with doctors during the fifth annual Walk with your Doc, May 3 – 11, 2014

The cross-province rain fall did not deter the nearly 2,700 walkers who joined their doctor for a walk during the week of May 3 – 11, 2014. The fifth annual Walk with your Doc saw 58 walks take place in urban and rural areas across BC, including Abbotsford, Campbell River, Nelson, Vancouver, and White Rock. Nearly 300 doctors and other health professionals walked side-by-side with their patients and the public to promote the health benefits of daily activity. 

Walk with your Doc 2014 partnered with 16 Divisions of Family Practice, 4 City Move for Health Events, and the First Nations Health Authority to expand scope and get more people moving in remote communities. All participants received pedometers to count their steps and monitor their daily activity. 

Vancouver kick-off walk a success!
