The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation’s Walk from Obesity is the only national walkathon that brings attention to the disease of obesity by raising awareness in communities all over the country. The Walk from Obesity also provides educational materials regarding obesity and the treatment options available.

St. Francis Hospital is hosting a Walk from Obesity this June and needs your help to reach our goal of raising $10,000. This is a great way to recognize our patients, family members and friends who have chosen to fight obesity, change their lives and be as healthy as possible.
