Middletown, N.Y. – May 13, 2013 – Crystal Run Healthcare has partnered with the Hudson Valley Renegades to host a Walk with a Doc at Dutchess Stadium prior to the Renegades’ June 30th game. Walkers and baseball fans of all ages and abilities are welcome to come out to enjoy the walk and stay for the Renegades game. The walk will take place on the field around the perimeter of the warning track. The Crystal Run physicians that will lead this walk will be Dr. Jonathan Nasser, Dr. Kimberly Estler, Dr. Michelle Koury, Dr. Sally Levine, Dr. Jocelyn Dummett, Dr. Lin-Lin Remenar and Dr. Karen Finnigan. Rascal the raccoon as well as other mascots from the Renegades will also be at the stadium to welcome everyone and encourage the walkers.

Walk with a Doc is a national non-profit organization and program that encourages heart health in local communities by partnering with healthcare organizations like Crystal Run Healthcare to organize walks with physicians and healthcare professionals. Walkers enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk with Crystal Run physicians who provide support to the walkers and answer questions along the way. Crystal Run held its first Walk with a Doc last spring and the program has continued to grow ever since. Local walkers and community members enjoy the organized walks each month at various parks in Orange County.

“Walking is a simple and convenient way to make strides towards a healthy lifestyle. Crystal Run Healthcare is excited to partner with the Hudson Valley Renegades to have our Walk with a Doc at Dutchess Stadium. We are looking forward to walking on the same field that the Renegades play on as the whole community gets healthy together,” said Jonathan Nasser, MD, physician and Walk with a Doc Team Leader for Crystal Run Healthcare.

Throughout the months of May and June, Crystal Run will be giving away free tickets to this walk on Facebook and their website. Anyone interested in attending the walk should visit for a chance to win free tickets. Participants do not have to be a patient of Crystal Run Healthcare to attend this walk but are required to have a ticket to the game since the walk is being held inside Dutchess Stadium. Tickets are also available for purchase on the Renegades website at or at the box office the day of the game. The walk will begin at 11:30am and should last for about an hour. The gates for the stadium will open fifteen minutes prior to the start of the walk. The Renegades game against the Brooklyn Cyclones will follow the walk at 1:05pm.

“The Hudson Valley Renegades are extremely happy to bring a Walk with a Doc here to Dutchess Stadium with our partners Crystal Run Healthcare. Just like Crystal Run, we advocate healthy living and what better way for our fans to get healthy than walking on the very field they will see the Renegades play on,” said Eben Yager, General Manager, Hudson Valley Renegades.
