UC Walks for Wellness on June 16

Wrapping up Staff Appreciation Week, the 8th annual UC Walks: Cal Walks at Work  Day is scheduled for Friday, June 16. Supervisors can show their appreciation and boost morale by encouraging attendance as a team, joining your team on the walk, and making it fun with some team props! Group walks begin at 12:10 pm from four campus locations to converge for the Celebration Event at Memorial Glade where participants receive a free UC Walks t-shirt (courtesy of UC’s medical and behavioral health plans), enjoy light refreshments, and join in our signature flash mob.  Be Well at Work—Wellness Program coordinates UC Walks, which kicks off the Summer Walking Challenge, and programs to support faculty and staff lead healthier lives.
See the UC Walks webpage for the promotional video, a flyer to spread the word, and registration.

The Wellness Program (formerly Health*Matters), in partnership with several campus departments, strives to foster a healthy work environment and to provide tools and resources to enhance and support the health and well-being of faculty, staff and their families.


The Work/Life Program identifies and recommends policies and benefits, and develops services and programs that enable faculty and staff to be productive members of the campus community while meeting personal and family obligations.
