Walking for Wellness GroupIn an effort to get people out of their office and into the fresh air, the “Walking for Wellness” series was formed to encourage healthy activity amongst the employees of Skyline College.  It is co-led by Classified Staff members Sandra Hatzistratis and Kristina Brower, and organized with the immeasurable help of Nina Floro through the CTTL (Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning.)

The first walk took place on Tuesday, October 7, when an enthusiastic group of 15 employees joined together to do a quick trail walk in and around the college campus.  When all was said and done, the group completed a nearly two and a half mile walk, enjoying a clear and beautiful day with amazing views of the Pacific, before going back to work feeling refreshed and invigorated!

“Walking for Wellness” will take place every month on the first Tuesday, at 1:00 pm.  Any Skyline College employees are welcome to join in any walk.  The group will always meet at the Vista Point at the back of the campus before beginning the walk.  If you would like more information, you can visit the CTTL website at http://skylinecttl.org/, or contact any of the employees mentioned in this article.  We hope you can join us for the next walk at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, November 4!
