Join your colleagues for Walktober

One of the most popular Wellness Program offerings for faculty and staff—Walktober—will return this October.

Walktober offers a fun and inspiring way to take advantage of autumn’s cool temperatures and spectacular views as you step out and step up to better health. During the month of October, participants will be taken on a virtual color tour through some of the world’s most vibrant, breathtaking landscapes while boosting energy, improving mood and making walking a priority—for life. Participants will fill up a virtual tree with red, orange and gold leaves based on daily physical activity by linking a tracking device/app or using the platform’s built-in activity tracking tool.

Sign up now and you can download the Walktober app, form a team (optional), add friends and browse recipes and other resources while you wait for the challenge to kick off Sunday, Oct. 1. Participate actively throughout the program and you’ll be entered into a prize raffle at the end!

Walktober is open to benefits-eligible faculty and staff only. Participation in Walktober can be used toward meeting the requirements for the Physical Activity Wellness Program Incentive. Read the full requirements on the physical activity page of the Wellness Program website.

Walktober will take place from Sunday, Oct. 1, through Tuesday, Oct. 31. Registration and team formation close Oct. 6.
