Join us on the January 23rd walk or the February 5th Walk with a Doc Programs.


Join us for a Walk With A Doc around Wildwood Park!  The full loop is approximately 3-miles in length, but it is a well-marked path and you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

Date: Saturday, January 8, 2022 

Meet Up Time: 11:00 a.m. 

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

The walk leader will be Dr. Robert Little. Dr. Little graduated from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia in 1967. Following a rotating internship in Philadelphia, he joined the Public Health Service and served at an Indian hospital in Browning Montana for two years. While in Montana he had many opportunities to hike in Glacier National Park and he learned to ski with his wife, Bjorg. One of his 3 children was born while he was there. Next, he took a residency in Family Medicine in Syracuse, NY before coming to Harrisburg where he became a founding physician at Hamilton Health Center along with the late Dr. Walter Kirker.

In 1988, along with his 4 partners, he started a private practice on North Progress Ave, Harrisburg. Later he worked for Pinnacle Health for 15 years before retiring from Family Practice in 2020.  Now he enjoys bike riding, hiking, pickleball, and gardening.  And spending time with his wife of 55 years and visiting his 3 children and 6 grandchildren when he can.

This is a rain or shine event; however, if there is snow or ice we may need to postpone the date or change to an indoor location for everyone's safety. If this should be necessary, we would let you know at least 1-hour prior to the event via the email address you use for registration. 

We encourage you to come out and join the walk for as long or as little as you are able.
