Hey, you. Yes, you. 

On Wednesday, April 24, do something special for lunch. Get up from your desk, get out of your office and instead enjoy the Southern California spring and go take a walk as part of UC Walks.

The UC Walks program promotes wellness and an active lifestyle by encouraging all UCLA (and all University of California) faculty and staff to take time out of their day to walk and build community and campus spirit.
