Calling all Dawgs! The Whole U is thrilled to invite you to virtually come together with fellow Huskies from across the University of Washington on August 11 for Husky Strong Day. This year has been full of challenges, but Husky Strong Day will be a virtual celebration of health, movement, and exercise for your whole family on Zoom.
If this year has taught us anything, it’s that we are stronger when we come together as a community. In that spirit, Husky Strong Day is benefiting the COVID-19 Employee Emergency Fund with a suggested $5 donation for all participants.
The fund supports employees facing financial hardships brought on by critical, temporary and unforeseen circumstances during the COVID-19 public health crisis. Register today and help us reach our donation goal of $7,500! To date, over 700 UW faculty and staff have already registered, and have brought in over $3,000.
Want to know a bit more? Here is what’s in store.
1. A day full of virtual fitness classes.
On August 11, all participants are invited to join hundreds of fellow Dawgs on Zoom anytime between 6:30 a.m. and 8:45 p.m. for a variety of fitness and exercise classes. Find your own path and attend the classes that interest you! Here’s a snapshot of the schedule:
2. Set a personal exercise goal and track your movement.
