Walking is a great way to introduce physical activity into your daily life*. For those who are already active, taking a walk break during the day helps mitigate the risks of prolonged sitting as well as helps with focus and productivity. Regardless of your goal, Health Promotion and Wellness has numerous tools available to help you make walking a daily activity.
Join Health Promotion and Wellness every Wednesday for a 30 minute walk around campus during the lunch hour beginning in May! Registration is appreciated in case any last minute information needs to be shared with those planning to attend.
Wednesday, April 3
Noon to 1:30 p.m.
Quad, Schroeder Plaza (rain location: Redbird Arena Concourse)
Join Health Promotion and Wellness and other campus and local organizations to walk for Move More Month! The first 100 people to walk a lap of the Quad will earn a free sandwich. Complete additional activities for extra prize entries. Prizes include a wellness goodie bag and a FitBit from TechZone.
And more! Check back for additional information.
Pocket-sized walking maps are available from Health Promotion and Wellness. The maps have four different routes of varying lengths around campus. The map folds down to fit conveniently into a pocket or wallet. Maps can be downloaded or picked up in McCormick 187.
*It is best to speak with your healthcare provider before starting any new physical activity.
