Do you need a break in your busy day-to-day life? Do you find yourself needing a pick-me-up during your day after sitting at a desk for most of your day? Would you like to walk and talk with other Harper employees and students to help increase your movement throughout the day?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should join our Wellness Walks! For less than an hour every other Thursday, Harper Wellness will take you - students and staff alike - on a relaxing walk around campus through various routes to help assist you with some short movement breaks. SIGN UP HERE!

And don't worry about when it gets cold, we'll just move the walks inside! That way, you don't have to worry about dragging your feet through melting snow and bundling up under nine layers for our infamous Chicago weather, and you can still get your steps in!

These walks will take place every other Thursday from 12:05pm - 12:35pm, beginning in Building A on the second floor by the fireplace (near the OneStop). Location of the walks will be communicated weekly as the meeting stop will be dependent on the weather (if rain or snow occurs, walks will begin at the Health and Recreation Center, Building M, indoor track). Attendance at the all of the walks is NOT mandatory. See all dates below:

- Thursday, September 8

- Thursday, November 17
