(May 5, 2006) — Wellness Center organizers took a creative approach to exercising for the annual Poker
Walk on the Campus Green April 25.
Participants warmed up with stretching exercises before taking off on the circular path‚ walking five laps for a total of one mile. At the end of each lap‚ every walker received a card with hopes of compiling the winning hand.
“This is the third year for the Poker Walk‚” Sherry Grable‚ director of the Wellness Center‚ said. “It was created to promote physical activity with an alternative competitive edge. It’s not about who comes in first‚ but who has the best poker hand.”
There was a tie for the winning hand this year‚ and both winners received a poker chip set; runners up received T−shirts and water bottles.
