If you’re an Auburn employee who enjoys walking or spending time with your co-workers, then mark your calendars for April 26. That’s when Walk @ Lunch will occur across campus.
Walk @ Lunch is one of several events planned for Employee Appreciation Week (April 24-28). Dozens of employees are expected to participate in one of the walks across campus.
Beginning at 11:45 a.m., on-campus walks will begin at the following locations:
- The Harrison College of Pharmacy (HCOP)
- Facilities Management – Building 1
- The College of Veterinary Medicine
- The East Glenn Administrative Complex
Each walk will take approximately 30 minutes. If you work off campus or in another county, that’s OK. ACES offices and other off-campus units are encouraged to host their own events!
Walk @ Lunch events are held annually across America. It’s a good reminder that a brisk, 30-minute walk can help people:
- Decrease the risk of heart attack and type 2 diabetes.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Improve muscle tone.
- Reduce stress.
The events are sponsored by HCOP and University Human Resources. Additional information about Walk @ Lunch and Employee Appreciation Week will be made available online.
If you would like to share photos from your respective event, just email firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to social media (#auappreciate).
