First Tuesday Trek set for Sept. 29

The inaugural “Tuesday Trek” for the fall 2015 semester is at 12:15 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29. The 1.5- to 2.5 mile walk will begin at the Student Services Building Pavilion and go around Campus Lake. The trek will last about 45 minutes. In the event of inclement weather, the trek will be in the Student Recreation Center indoor track. 

Studies show that walking is one of the easiest ways for a person to get the exercise they need to stay healthy. Heart disease is the nation’s No. 1 killer, but by exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day the risk can be reduced. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 145 million adults now include walking as part of an active lifestyle.
