Let’s lace up our sneakers and move!

Walking is one of the simplest, positive behavior changes you can make to impact your health. This summer, we encourage you to get moving, individually or as a team, through this six-week period and beyond! There will be weekly raffles and a grand prize at the end!

June 13 — July 24

June is the perfect month to get moving more!  This walking program promotes an active lifestyle and gets the campus community moving with the addition of a little friendly competition. We will be sharing a leaderboard for both individuals and for teams. At the end of each week, there will be a prize winner for things such as demonstrating the most progress or providing the most enthusiasm in the Teams group.
