Walk With a Doc is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country.

Future walks will be announced via Good Samaritan’s Facebook page and the Walk With a Doc website, Get walking, and get healthy with Good Samaritan’s Walk With a Doc.
