Food drive part of Dec. 11 Walk with a Doc at Walnut Hill Park
New Britain [November 30 2010] -
Nov. 6 walk a success
The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s next Walk with a Doc will be 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 11 at Walnut Hill Park, New Britain. It will include a 30-minute walk, heart health tips from a cardiologist, and during this holiday season, a food drive for the New Britain Food and Resource Center.
Just before leading the walk, Robert Borkowski, M.D., a cardiologist, will talk about ways to prevent heart disease.
For the food drive, non-perishable items may be dropped off from 8:30 to 10 a.m. that day at the registration site, just behind the pavilion.
This will be the hospital’s third Walk with a Doc event. In November, nearly 60 walkers participated in a walk at Farmington River Trail, Unionville, that was led by Latha Dulipsingh, M.D., an endocrinologist who spoke about risk factors for diabetes.
The hospital is the first in New England to join Just Walk, a Walk with a Doc program that hosts free community walks at area parks that are led by a doctor and stress the benefits of exercise while providing health tips. After the December event, walks will resume in April.
For the Dec. 11 walk, registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. behind the pavilion, followed at 9 a.m. by the health tips and walk. Participants will receive a free T-shirt, hat, pedometer, water bottle and fanny pack. Sponsors are Anthem and Pepsi Beverages Company.
