Celebrate the 10th annual UC Walks

On May 8, employees at UCOP in Oakland and the UCPath Center in Riverside are invited to participate in the 10th annual UC Walks — a celebration of UC’s commitment to health, well-being and community.

Both events will feature healthy snacks, fun group activities, giveaways and raffle prizes. And of course — a walk in the sunshine with your coworkers!

Sponsored by UC’s Systemwide WellBeing Initiative, UC Walks just keeps growing. Last year’s Oakland event drew a record crowd, with almost one-third of OP employees attending. At the UCPath Center, participation doubled from 2017 to 2018.

Gather your coworkers, put on your walking shoes and join the fun!
