This Walk With A Doc program is designed to provide some general health information and a moderately-paced walk on the Capital Area Greenbelt. The walk is FREE, but we ask that you pre-register so we know how many participants to expect. 

The walk leader will be Dr. Mack Ruffin of Penn State Health. 

Topic: Physical Activity and Cancer Prevention.

This is a rain or shine event. 

Most of the walk will be flat, but there are some slightly elevated areas. The full walk is estimated to take approximately 1-hour based on the pace of the walkers. We encourage you to come out and join the walk for as long or as little as you are able. 

Things to Know Before you Go:

  • You may encounter slightly uneven terrain along with paved surfaces. 
  • Dress for the weather and wear comfortable supportive shoes.
  • Bring a bottle of water with you to stay hydrated. You may also bring your own snacks.
  • You may want to bring a hat, sunglasses, bug spray, and sunscreen. 
  • This route is handicapped-accessible.

This walk is being organized by Penbrook BoroughSusquehanna Township, Capital Area Greenbelt Association, and Dauphin County Parks & Recreation Department. We would like to thank the City of Harrisburg Parks & Recreation Department for allowing the use of this location. 

This walk is being supported as part of the Park Rx program sponsored by Highmark Blue Shield through the Dauphin County Parks & Recreation Department.
