UC Walks Day



Sixth annual UC Walks set for May 20, 2015

On Wednesday, May 20, 2015 you’ll want to bring or wear your walking shoes to work so that you can join your colleagues in the sixth annual systemwide UC Walks.

Organized by campus and health systems Wellness Coordinators, UC Walks is open to all UC faculty, staff and retirees. Participants in this year’s UC Walks will receive a free T-shirt, while supplies last, courtesy of Kaiser and Optum Wellness.

You can find out more about UC Walks activities at your location by visiting the UC Living Well website.

*Employees and retirees eligible for the wellness incentive award who participate in UC Walks will earn 2,500 points toward the 7,500 points needed to receive the $75 incentive gift card. You can also earn points by completing the online Total Health Profile and through other campus activities, online health programs, wellness coaching and preventive exams and screenings. Employees represented by some collective bargaining units are not eligible to participate in the UC Living Well wellness program and cannot earn the incentive gift card.

At UC Davis Health System, our plan is to have interested participants meet at the Cancer Survivors’ Park (corner of Stockton Blvd. and 2nd Ave) anytime between 11:30 am and 1:00 p.m. to receive your UC Walks t-shirt (t-shirts will be provided to the first 400 participants), and start your walk for wellness! Walking group leaders will be available at this event. The two 15-minute walks will take place at 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Representatives from WorkLife and Wellness will be available to answer questions about the UC Wellness programs, provide a UC Davis Health System campus walking map, and to cheer you on. 

Come and receive points for your UC Living Well / Optum incentive!
