UC Walks at UCI - Wednesday, May 17, 2017

UC Walks 2107    

Thanks to everyone that came out to the 2017 UC Walks Event at UCI!
This Annual UC Systemwide event helps build community and campus spirit throughout the UC system by encouraging faculty, staff, and retirees at all UC Locations to take time out of their day to walk. More than 6,437 people across the system participated in UC Walks last year, collectively covering more than 9,585 miles.
All walkers received a 2017 UC Walks T-shirt (sponsored by the UC health plan vendors).

Don’t forget to show your UCI - UC Walks spirit by sharing photos of you and your colleagues on Twitter, using #UCWalks. UCOP will post a collection of #UCWalks photos from all UC Locations on UCnet after the event.
