Welcome Summer and Walk With a Doc from Flaget Memorial Hospital
Bardstown, Ky. (July 7, 2014)— Despite the heat of summer, it is important to stay active year round. To help local community members in this effort, Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host its monthly Walk With a Doc event on Saturday, July 12, 2014.
The events take place monthly as part of a nationwide program to empower people to improve their health through low impact physical activity. The walk will begin at 10 a.m. at the Old Courthouse Building downtown (One Court Square) and will be lead by a local physician.
Physicians recommend that everyone engage in physical activity for 30 minutes, five days a week. Walking is an excellent opportunity for physical fitness as it requires no special equipment and can be done by most all fitness and skill levels.
All are invited to participate in this free event; success at physical activity is often improved when family and friends walk together toward a healthier lifestyle. Participants can also receive complementary health screenings at the event.
