THE BRONX - A group of Bronx doctors walked alongside their patients today in an effort to promote healthier, more active lifestyles.

The group, Doctors for a Healthier Bronx, holds the walk-a-thon twice a year, in May and October, to get local residents moving. The doctors say it's especially important after a recent study by the University of Wisconsin found that the borough is the unhealthiest county in New York State.
