Join "UC Walks" on May 19

UCSF is celebrating the first systemwide “UC Walks” day on Wednesday, May 19.

By hosting this special wellness event, UCSF joins 10 other UC locations in promoting health and wellness throughout the UC system.

Faculty, staff, students and trainees are encouraged to step outside with campus and medical center leaders for a brief walk on this National Employee Health and Fitness Day.

Those who participate will receive a free T-shirt while supplies last made possible by UC wellness sponsors: Staywell and Kaiser Permanente. Walkers also can enter their name in a drawing for additional giveaways.

Organized walks will take place at the following UCSF locations: Parnassus Heights, San Francisco General Hospital, Mission Bay and Laurel Heights.

All walks will begin at noon, but participants are asked to please arrive 15 minutes early to pickup a T-shirt.

Please register in advance for one of these walks online here.
