The Walk to Wellness event will take place Wednesday at noon.

As spring approaches with warm weather, students are being encouraged to be more active with their daily routine.

Illinois State University’s Health Promotion and Wellness is hosting a walk for the ISU community to promote a month of fitness. The walk will begin at noon Wednesday on the Quad.

ISU Coordinator of Communications and Marketing Erin Link wants students to take time out of their busy schedules and learn more about physical education.

“We find even those with a regular exercise routine that they still spend most of their day sitting. So, we partner with the American Heart Association to do this event,” Link said.

“It focuses on helping people to learn ways to work movement throughout the day, in the whole month of April.”

Those who attend will receive a free sandwich at the end of the walk. Participants also have a chance to win goodie bags and a Fitbit provided by ISU’s TechZone.

Other participating organizations include the American Heart Association of Greater Illinois, ISU Exercise is Medicine, Campus Recreation and more.

ISU sophomore physical education major Isaiah Wickware believes that fitness can be a great stress relief that is offered at ISU.

“Fitness and wellness is beneficial for almost every aspect of a college student’s life,” Wickware said.
