UC ANR employees get moving for UC Walks

Susan Weaver also won a fashion photo award for her UC ANR Walks team shot at Martial Cottle Park.

More than 50 ANR people got their daily steps in while participating in the annual UC Walks on May 12. They gathered online for light stretching to warm up, then went outside to walk or stayed on Zoom for group yoga. After the invigorating activity, participants reconvened on Zoom to do cool-down stretches and to share comments about the exercise.

UC ANR promotes wellness by encouraging employees to take time out of their day to be physically active.

The UC ANR Staff Assembly Wellness Committee, which organized the event, offered raffle and photo contest prizes.  

Winners of the UC Walks raffle were Laura Gonzalez, who won a $25 gift card, and Christopher Wong and Jan Newman, who each won a Fitbit. 

The UC Walks photo contest attracted 29 entries in the categories of fashion, urban and nature. Two winners were selected per category. Each winner will receive a $25 gift card to a sporting goods retailer of their choice.
