Walk With a Doc to be Hosted at Gregg Park

Walk With a Doc will continue on Saturday mornings with a change in location and time. The weekly event will be hosted at Gregg Park beginning Saturday, May 6th at 9:00 a.m. The community is invited to join and spend a few minutes learning about a current health topic from a Good Samaritan provider. Then, attendees will spend the rest of the hour enjoying a healthy walk at their own pace and distance. Gregg Park is located at 2204 Washington Ave, in Vincennes. Door prizes will be raffled at the end of the walk.
