The 7th annual “I Heart Walking” event will be held on next Monday through Thursday, February 11-14, 2013. During these four days, staff, faculty and students are encouraged to step out from behind their desk from noon to 1 p.m. each day and join the rest of the UCLA community to complete a series of walks through campus and Westwood Village. As a partnering project with the Healthy Campus Initiative, “I Heart Walking” aims to promote the benefits of walking, and encourage the campus community to uphold a healthy lifestyle.

The walking locations include Janss Steps (Monday), Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (Tuesday), and Kinross Recreation Facilities (Wednesday). Walking route options are offered in two levels, depending on your preference for pace and level of activity. Check out the walking maps for the routes and checkpoints. The event will be concluded on Thursday with the Grand Finale at Pauley Pavilion. Attendees will all have a chance to win amazing prizes!

Remember to bring your staff ID and comfortable shoes with you to the walk, and don’t forget to register in advance! We hope to see you all there!
