Join this year’s Healthiest State Walk

Grab your walking shoes and join this year’s Healthiest State Walk on Wednesday, Oct. 6.

We know that you spend a lot of time working, and it is important to find ways to prioritize staying healthy and active. The Iowa Healthiest State 11th Annual Walk, presented by Delta Dental of Iowa, is a great way to get started, or keep moving.

To mitigate risk, we will not meet as a large group to start the walk together this year. Instead, we are asking faculty, staff, and students to take a break sometime during the day on Oct. 6 and go for a walk. Thirty minutes is ideal, but any amount of time is great. If you are on campus, walk the Bulldog Mile. This one-mile path begins on the sidewalk east of the Olmsted Center. Just follow the signage and big blue paw prints.

As an added bonus, everyone who sends an email to after they complete their Healthiest State Walk will be placed in a drawing for a chance at prizes.

Let’s get moving and “Walk the Dog”—the “Bulldog Mile!”
