Start a Walk – Tools

Tools for Starting a Walk Chapter

We have been launching Walk with a Doc chapters in hundreds of communities around the world since 2005. Our turnkey program provides all the tools and resources you need to successfully get your patients and community moving.

Ongoing Support

Our team has launched hundreds of WWAD programs since 2005, and we’re excited to share all of the best practices that we’ve learned over the years to help make your program successful. We’re easy to reach by phone or email anytime.

Liability Insurance

All U.S. and Canada chapters will be fully insured under the Walk with a Doc umbrella so you don’t have to absorb any sort of risk. Walkers, healthcare providers, and staff members are covered at your events, and we provide a waiver for all participants to sign.

Marketing Materials

All leaders will receive access to our online leader portal with a comprehensive marketing guide and editable materials. You’ll also gain access to our curated library of health talk ideas with ready-to-print handouts for your walkers.

Webpage Development

Our team will build and maintain a webpage to outline your walk information and anything else you’d like to share about your organization. Your WWAD page will also be added to our website map. Click here for a sample.

Merchandise Package

When you sign up for membership, you will choose one of three merchandise packages with t-shirts, pedometers, water bottles yard signs, RX pads, and more. Use these tools to incentivize walkers and help promote your chapter.
