Medical Fitness Week WALK10K Walking Challenge

Join UNC Health Care Wellness Centers as we try for our fourth straight international championship in the MOVE10K Walking Challenge, presented by the Medical Fitness Association as part of Medical Fitness Week, April 23-29.

For three years running, UNC Wellness Center at Meadowmont has topped the list of highest total number of steps walked,  tallying more than 87 million steps in just seven days during last years event! This year, we invite all UNC Health Care employees to join the movement and walk for a better lifestyle. This year many of our fellow entities -- Johnston Health, Rex Wellness and UNC Wellness Centers -- are partnering together for a common goal: to bring wellness to you! Walking is a simple activity that can have profound effects on your health and longevity.

The only thing you need to get started is a pedometer or other tracking device to track your steps or distance for one week. Please contact your local wellness center for more information or email , fitness director for UNC Wellness Centers. Sign-ups will begin soon.
