Conceived in 2003 by Bryan Woodward, MPH, the ASMBS Foundation’s Walk from Obesity is the only national walkathon that brings attention to the disease of obesity by raising awareness in communities across the country. The Walk from Obesity provides educational materials regarding obesity and the treatment options available.

Whether you are an individual struggling with obesity, have successfully treated your obesity, know someone who is struggling, or are interested in supporting the fight against obesity, we welcome you to join us as we Walk from Obesity.

The Walk From Obesity raises funds for the ASMBS Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit. Funds support the ASMBS Foundation’s mission to fund:

  • Obesity Research
  • Education
  • Provide Access to Care Initiatives
