Patients get social for good health with BC’s doctors
Surrey and North Delta, BC | Walk with your Doc takes place around the province May 7 – 14. The Surrey North Delta Division of Family Practice will hold its walking event at Bear Creek Park near the track on May 10th at 6 PM and is inviting the community to join in.
Now in its eighth year Walk with your Doc supports doctors who want to host a community walk and invite their patients, families and friends to walk side by side with them and discuss in an informal atmosphere the benefits of daily activity on overall physical and mental health. Held in communities across the province, Walk with your Doc demonstrates that people of all ages, no matter their ability, can be healthier by staying active. And walking is a simple, effective, and social activity.
Participants can receive a free pedometer at the event by signing up online at walkwithyourdoc. They also have the chance to win one of several great prizes by uploading their walk photos to social media with the hashtag #WalkWithYourDoc. The website links walkers to the rest of BC by posting cross-province event photos, doctor and patient stories, and displaying an interactive map of regional walks.
