UC Walks in Oakland
UC Walks returns for its ninth year, bringing together faculty, staff, students and retirees system wide to take a walk, share wellness tips and enjoy the spring sunshine. Join your UCOP colleagues to walk a portion of Lake Merritt together — from the lawn bowling courts to the pergola (columns) and back– about a 40 minute round trip.
UC Walks kicks off in Lakeside Park with warm-up stretches, games and snacks. To find UCOP’s meeting place, take Grand Ave. to Bellevue Ave. and turn right into the park. Signs and balloons will guide you to the event. UC’s medical and behavioral health plan vendors will be on hand with giveaways and information about wellness programs, and every participant will receive a free UC Walks t-shirt.
Show your UC Walks spirit by sharing photos of you and your colleagues on Twitter, using the hashtag #UCWalks. We’ll post a collection of #UCWalks photos on UCnet after the event.
If you have questions about this event, please contact Maura.McLoughlin@ucop.edu.
