Kearney participates in UC Walks

Twenty Kearney staff and academics took part in the systemwide UC Walks program May 1. UC Walks promotes wellness and an active lifestyle by encouraging employees to take time out of their day to walk. The event also builds community and campus spirit throughout the UC system. 

At Kearney, UC Walks was coordinated by Emily Melton Casado, financial services manager for the UC ANR Business Operation Center located at Kearney. Casado serves as the the center's Staff Assembly Ambassador. Each ANR location across the state has an ambassador who serves as a liaison with the Staff Assembly Council and coordinates activities at local sites.

The Kearney walking team poses for a picture before setting out for a lunchtime walk on the center grounds.
 
UC Walks takes place across the state at UC ANR facilities, the 10 UC campuses, laboratories, medical centers and other sites.
 
The Kearney team jumped halfway through the walk to see if we will register on the nearby earthquake monitoring equipment.
 
After walking about a mile and a half, the team cooled off in the shade.
 
Everyone at Kearney - lab assistants, groundskeepers, agricultural staff, staff research associates, Cooperative Extension specialists, visiting scientists, etc. - are welcome to take part in the annual UC Walks event. Look for an announcement next year, receive a free t-shirt and join UC Walks.
