From: Hokie Wellness

Hokie Wellness is pleased to announce the introduction of a new program: Walking Wednesdays.

Members of the Hokie Wellness team will be on the steps of Burruss Hall on Wednesday, Aug. 29, at 11:45 a.m. to hand out tracking cards.

Hokies are encouraged to join a friend for a 30-minute walk around campus or town every Wednesday at lunch time. Hokie Wellness will provide tracking cards for those walking each Wednesday. Stop by the Hokie Wellness table each week to have the tracking card validated.

Complete nine walks this semester, get your card stamped, and earn one entry into a drawing for a Yeti Roadie 20 cooler. Complete 12 walks and earn two entries for the drawing. Complete all 16 walks and earn three entries into the drawing. The tracking card must be returned on Dec. 19, the last Wednesday to be eligible for the drawing. (Please note that due to regulations and policy, the winner will be taxed through payroll for the value of the cooler.)
