Move Together

Join our weekly walk and movement group this summer!

What is it?

This is a low-barrier, gender-inclusive, movement-based group activity aimed to improve the health and well-being of the campus community by supporting holistic health; physically, emotionally, and socially through connections.  Walk with doctors and nurses as well as students and staff and let’s move our bodies around beautiful campus scenery and great conversation.

Where and when is it?

Participants can meet in Convo Mall (by the water fountain) at 1:30PM for a chat about a relevant health and wellness topic (Example: Sun safety) – Then, get moving! Proceed as a group for a mindful tour and chat along a designated campus path.
