Walk With Your Doc invites community participation
Doctors, patients, caregivers and families will all join Thursday to promote the benefits of daily exercise. The annual Walk With Your Doc in Port Alberni will showcase people of all ages walking laps around Bob Dailey Stadium track. Many local health care providers are on board.
Dr. Daryl Lund will be there and said the message is an important one. "We tell patients to get exercise regularly and eat right but practicing what we preach is important," Lund said. "Make it a part of your daily life," he said. "It is like an investment. Pay yourself first before you call it a day."
