Our inaugural 'Walk With a Doc' event was so much fun this past weekend!

Over 200 people came out to walk with BCH cardiologist Nelson Trujillo, MD, and learn about the health benefits of walking.

Dr. Trujillo gave a very entertaining talk before leading a stretch and then off we went, walking a loop around East Boulder Park!

Dr. Trujillo has challenged all of us to spend 20 minutes a day walking -- 10 minutes out and 10 minutes back -- between now and the next 'Walk With a Doc' event on Saturday, August 26 at 8:00 am at North Boulder Park. Learn about our upcoming 'Walk With a Doc' events at bch.org/WalkWithaDoc.

As our event coordinator Gina Simmering, RN, says: Walking is the new medicine!

Thank you to all of our sponsors for making this event so successful! BCH is truly partnering to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation.
