The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that adults get 150 moderate activity or 75 vigorous physical activity a week. While there are lot of ways to get moving, the American Heart Association says that walking is one with the lowest drop out rate of them all!
The benefits of walking are why South Holt Family Medicine staff invite you to join them to get walking this summer. On the first Friday of every month, Lindsay Williams M.D. will be hosting a “Walk with a Doc.” Community members can meet Dr. Williams in the front of the South Holt Family Medicine building at 101 S. Washington at noon to walk for all or part of the next hour. Walkers of all types are encouraged as all paces will be welcomed on the flat course selected for the walk.
If weather becomes inclement, the walk will be cancelled. The first walk will be on Friday, May 4 and follow each first Friday of the month until winter weather.
For questions about the walk, contact South Holt Family Medicine at (660) 446-2090, visit www.FairfaxMed.com or find Community Hospital-Fairfax Family Medicine Clinics on Facebook.
