Come Walk with your Doc in Parksville

Annual event takes place May 7

Walking is a form of exercise that everyone can take part in.

It has health benefits and it’s a prescription that doctors and anyone in the health industry give out for free. It’s a recommended step for a healthier lifestyle.

On May 7, medical physicians in Parksville Qualicum Beach will host the annual Walk with your Doc event. It will start at the Parksville Medical Clinic at 154 Memorial Ave. in Parksville at 6 p.m.

Participants do not need to register. They can just meet in front of the clinic to join a few of the area’s physicians for a walk down to the Parksville Community Park Beach.

The walking event that is held across the province has always been very popular with people in the past. This year the Parksville Qualicum Beach walk is being organized by Dr. David Owen.
