Once again, UNH will celebrate Walk NH Week  with a walk around the UNH campus and town of Durham.  UNH will join other groups from throughout New Hampshire in recognizing Walk NH Week by holding a community walk during on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 on the Durham campus.

Walk NH Week is an event designed to encourage people of all ages to get out, get moving, participate in a one to three mile community walk, and to begin a healthy, active lifestyle.  Several years ago, Governor John Lynch proclaimed June 1-7 as Walk NH Week, as a way to promote walking and help keep New Hampshire residents on a healthy path.  The goal of Walk NH Week is to inspire participants to continue walking as part of a healthy lifestyle long after the June event’s end. This yearly event aligns perfectly with the work of Healthy UNH, an initiative on campus working to make UNH the healthiest campus community in the country by 2020. One focus of Healthy UNH is to encourage people to get active. 

How to Participate

When:   11:30am-1:30pm on Wednesday, June 3, 2015
Where: The walk will begin and end at the UNH Whittemore Center Arena. Participants should check-in inside the lobby of the arena. In the event of rain, the event will be moved to the top floor of the Hamel Center.
