UNO's TREK to Campus Day Site!
Uno is gearing up for Trek to campus day on April 22, 2010 and we want students and faculty to join in! This event is organized by the Organization and Administration of Physical Education class. With TREK to campus, we want to promote and educate about the benefits of walking, biking, carpooling or using public transportation as a means of commuting. Our goal with TREK to campus is to enhance our community by cutting down traffic congestion and parking issues as well as, improving air quality and boosting personal health and fitness
Join us on April 22 at the Pep Bowl (in front of Epply Administration Building) from 10am to 2pm. There will be drawings for many great prizes and best of all it is free. Just show up at our booth and sign up. We will have pamphlets and other aids for you to see the many ways to commute to campus as well. Have a great trek to campus.
“Physical activity appears to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety and improve mood… Regular physical activity may reduce the risk of developing depression…Physical activity reduces the risk of premature mortality in general, and of coronary disease, hypertension, colon cancer, and diabetes mellitus in particular. Physical activity also improves mental health and is important for the health of muscles, bones and joints.” (“Report on Physical Activity and Health: A Report of the Surgeon General, 1996)
- If one out of 10 car commuters would switch to walking or biking, we’d reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25.4 million tons a year. (www.nhtsa.gov )
