Seniors Walk for Health

Posted on: May 1st, 2012


Around 130 seniors gathered at the Senior Citizens Center today for the annual Seniors’ Walk sponsored by South Georgia Medical Center and the Valdosta – Lowndes County Parks and Recreation Authority. Participants received blood pressure screenings and checks on their current medications and enjoyed breakfast provided by Covington’s.

After a stroke prevention presentation given by SGMC neurologist Dr. Brian Dawson and several prize drawings, the seniors set off for a few laps around the Center’s track. SGMC employees distributed t-shirts to walkers at the finish line.
