People of all ages are encouraged to join Cuyuna Regional Medical Center’s Dr. Wendi Johnson the on Wednesdays afternoons for Walk with the Doc, a free health program that brings doctors and other healthcare providers and patients together to walk.
Walk with Doc has a goal of improving the health of participants. Walks start at 4:30 p.m. at the Hallett Community Center in Crosby where participants hear a brief presentation on the benefits of walking and wellness and then head to the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Trails near the Croft Mine to walk at their own pace.
Increasing exercise, even moderately, may help reduce the risks of many diseases, including coronary heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Adding 10 minutes of physical activity a day, such as walking, is a small change that can make a big difference. CRMC teamed up with Walk with a Doc to bring the international program to the Cuyuna Lakes.
