Beginning May 16, with events continuing into July, members of the UC community gathered at locations across the system to celebrate wellness in the ninth annual UC Walks. Participation increased once again this year, up by over 20 percent from last year’s high. Across the 15 locations reporting (with final counts to come), 8,404 participants walked for a combined total of 171,246 minutes.

In addition to each location’s group walk, highlights included wellness fairs, Zumba and other fitness classes, pep rallies and healthy snacks. 

We asked everyone to share their favorite UC Walks photos by tweeting us a photo using #UCWalks. Here is a slideshow, showing employees across UC walking their way to an active, healthy lifestyle. Thanks for sharing your photos!

UC Walks is a Systemwide WellBeing Initiative program that is coordinated by the wellness programs at each campus and health system.
