Hosting a Walk from Obesity is a tremendous experience and a great way to bring those affected by obesity together to raise funds and awareness of the impact of obesity, and the need for expanded efforts to end the rising epidemic.

From New York to California, walkers all across the country represent their successes in the fight against obesity. We hope you can join the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation and together we will bring this unique event to your community!
