The holidays are upon us, so it’s a good time to take a stress and health break. You can do that Saturday at 8 a.m. during the Walk With a Doc event.

University of Arizona Medical Center cardiothoracic surgeon Jess Thompson will talk about adults with congenital heart disease, then lead a group walk along the Rillito River. You can choose to walk for one or two miles.

The walk begins at the Rillito River Park, on the east side of the Swan Road bridge, south bank. Plan to arrive between 7:45 and 7:55 a.m. to sign in.  

Bring water, and snacks if you want. Pets on leashes are welcome.

For more information call Steve Nash at 795-7985.
