Walking for Wellness Campaign

Welcome to the 24th year of NoonTime Wellness at Sacramento State! Over the next several weeks we will offer activities that we hope will get you moving! We have a beautiful park-like campus that will serve as the springboard for our Walking for Wellness campaign.

Do you want to start a fitness program and don’t know where to start? It’s easy – Walking is it! Walking is one of the easiest and most effective forms of exercise. All you need is a good pair of shoes, comfortable clothing, and the interest!

As part of Walking for Wellness we are launching the Sacramento State Walking Group(s)! Come on and join a group or walk alone –just participate!

**SharePoint Link**
Record your steps here!

We will provide monthly incentives to our top walkers!

Walker categories:

  • Strollers – Light intensity, the point is to get up and get moving. Stop and enjoy the roses, get intoxicated by their heavenly scent.
  • Movers – Moderate intensity, let’s get out, get our heart rate up and the blood circulating. Briefly check out the roses and breathe the beauty in as you walk by.
  • Shakers – Intense exercise, get your blood pumping and produce a little sweat. Get a whiff of the roses as you whiz by.

See how our wellness activities also count for steps.
