Stay Informed. Stay Connected.

On Wednesday, we walk!

The 10th annual UC Walks takes place this Wednesday, May 8. UCOP employees in Oakland and Riverside are encouraged to join colleagues for an afternoon of fitness and fun. Both events will feature healthy snacks, 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. Let’s break those records by walking this year!
