The first annual Walk with your Doc took place along the Seawalk on Monday at lunchtime.
Seawatch Medical along with the Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice, Active Living Physio, Rehabilitation in Motion and Heartstrong Fitness hosted the event.
Doctors and physio therapists walked long the ocean with their patients to promote an active lifestyle.
It was also an opportunity for patients and professionals to see each other in a different light, said Janet MacDonell, operations coordinator for the Campbell River and District Division of Family Practice.
There was 17 participants at the event, which is a nation wide initiative.
