About our Annual Walk Challenge
While our typical in-person Walk with a Doc programs are free and ongoing throughout the year, the annual Walk Challenge is a way to bring together our walkers and doctors through one big, exciting event. We push our limits, encourage each other, and raise money that allows Walk with a Doc to expand our programming and impact even more lives. Check back soon and follow us on social media for details of our next Walk Challenge.
2022 Aloha Adventure
Bonus event!! In honor of Heart Health Month, we partnered with Fresh Avocados – Love One Today® for a special walk adventure from February 14-27, 2022!

2020 Walk Challenge – Kilimanjaro
In 2020, we spent two weeks moving along Mt. Kilimanjaro with 487 participants from around the globe! In this virtual challenge, participants logged their activity and watched their progress along the 44.2-mile route while taking in resourceful health tips from our docs at virtual basecamps! We truly enjoyed the opportunity to be socially connected during this period of physical distancing.
2019 Walk Challenge – New Albany, OH
The inaugural Walk Challenge was a one-day event where participants walked anywhere from 5 to 50 miles, whatever was a personal challenge for them! WWAD HQ hosted an in-person event in New Albany, OH and we also had participants around the world who took on the challenge in their own community. What an incredible day!
