Get Moving with Quad in Motion

  • September 11th, 2017

The third annual Quad in Motion will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13, on the Quad. The day includes favorite activities from past years and some new events.

The Office of Health Promotion and Wellness wants all 6,000+ employees to keep the Quad in Motion by walking or running for at least 30 minutes that day. To ensure all 6,000+ don’t show up at once, OHPW is asking employees to sign up for a 30-minute slot. If you don’t like to walk alone, bring your department with you.

Ever health-conscious, Big Al will again be at Quad in Motion to encourage participants.
