Mark your calendar for April 6, 2016 for National Walking Day! Aultman is excited to team up with local organizations this year to celebrate and we want you to get involved, too!
This year, we will be working with Mercy Medical Center, and other local organizations, to host a family-friendly community event. The event will take place from 4-6:30 p.m. on April 6 at the Canton Garden Center, located at 1615 Stadium Park Drive NW in Canton and will include free health screenings, opportunities to win prizes, fitness stations and more!
Aultman Hospital’s Happy Tails volunteer dog teams will also be at the event. Each local organization will be available to answer questions and will also have a table at the event with information. Complimentary apples, bananas and water will be available for participants.
A community Walk with a Doc will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. Drs. Mallamaci and Seibert will be leading the walk for Aultman along with Dr. David Gormsen from Mercy. You are invited to take part in this walk, which will take approximately one hour, and get your health questions answered. Drs. Mallamaci, Seibert and Gormsen will be educating participants on the importance of physical activity.
Walk with a Doc is a year-round walking program that operates in communities across America and abroad to encourage healthy physical activity for people of all ages. Aultman is proud to take part in the program to support its mission to lead our community to improved health. For more information on the Walk with a Doc program, please visit www.walkwithadoc.org.
