UC Moves

UC Moves 2021

To promote inclusion and to recognize the various ways we can include physical activity in our daily lives, we are renaming UC Walks to UC Moves! 

This year, we will be hosting a virtual UC Moves that will take place starting Thursday, June 24th and ending Wednesday, June 30th. This is a great opportunity to ensure you stick with your exercise routines, or create new ones as we transition into summer. Participants who log the recommended 150 minutes of physical activity for the week will be entered into a raffle. The grand prize is a bike donated by Kaiser! To participate in the raffle, fill out this activity log and submit it to jbulleri@ucsc.edu no later than end of day Thursday, July 8th. 


About UC Walks

UC Walks is a systemwide UC Living Well program that is coordinated by the Faculty & Staff Wellness Program at each campus. 

UC Walks promotes wellness and an active lifestyle by encouraging faculty, staff, and retirees to take just 30 minutes out of their work-day to walk.  The event also builds community and campus spirit throughout the University of California system.  

Check out UC Walk 2019's slideshow. Across all locations, over 8,000 participants walked for a combined total of 171,246 minutes - a record high!

We had a total of 112 participants and a grand total of 3,362 minutes walked! Thank you to everyone who participated!
