Get Fit This Spring with a 5K Walk
March 16, 2010, Volume 56, No. 25

Take charge of your health (and welcome spring) by participating in a 5K (3.1 mile) walk. 

Join us on Friday, April 9 in front of the Ben Franklin statue on College Green at noon. All faculty and staff are welcome to participate. If you’re a member of the Penn Walking Program, you’re encouraged to wear your “I’m a Penn Walker” t-shirt and bring your pedometer. You’ll also be able to register for the program and receive a t-shirt, welcome packet and pedometer.

The course will run from Locust Walk to 40th Street, through the paths of Woodlands Cemetery, and back to the starting point. Suzanne Smith, health promotion specialist in Penn’s Division of Human Resources, will lead the group walk at a moderate pace (about 45 minutes). Walkers of all levels are encouraged to participate. Volunteer walkers will be placed throughout the group to ensure no one is left behind.
