ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Doctors in Albany have the perfect prescription for your health... exercise!  
The Dougherty County Medical Society is holding its second Riverfront Run on October 24th. It's partly to raise money for the Rails to Trails project, which will encourage families to be more active outside, and that's just what the doctor ordered. 

"There are a lot of positive effects of exercise on many diseases, specifically heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes," said Dr. Deborah Trammel of the Dougherty County Medical Society. "Not only can exercise help you have good benefits once you have these diseases, but they can help prevent or reduce the risk of getting these diseases."

Kids or adults can sign up for the one mile walk or 5-K race. If you sign up before race day, it's cheaper.
