Move UBC Kickoff Walk

by Sahar Zandi Nia


February is Move UBC Month and to celebrate the start of the month, UBC recreation will be hosting the Kickoff Walk on Wednesday February 5th, 2020.

Move UBC is an annual initiative aimed at increasing physical activity and reducing the time the UBC community spends sitting. Moving more is associated with improved physical and mental health, academic and professional success, and can contribute to wellbeing in significant ways.


Things to do, people to see…


Every Wednesday, the Move U Crew hosts Wellbeing Walks as a way to provide a convenient, accessible, and free way to improve your health, reduce stress, and make connections with the community and nature.



In light of Move UBC, the Move U Crew will be hosting a very special large walk around campus to kick off the month. Along the walk, you will find celebration stations and partners near Martha Piper Square where there will be lots of free promo goods and giveaways! We have partnered up with HOPR, the Bike Kitchen, and the Wellness Centre among many others. Not to mention that there will also be a large inflatable obstacle course along main mall!



Even if you can’t make the walk, be sure to come check out all of celebration stations and partners!

So are you convinced yet?





The event will take place on Wednesday February 5th, 2020 at 12-1pm.



The walk will start and end at Martha Piper Plaza, which is by the water fountain on main mall. The celebration stations and partners will also be located on main mall.
