Walking Promotion

This project will install marked walking paths with distance and directional signage on the UC Davis and UC Davis Medical Center campuses.

There will be four marked 1-mile walking paths in each campus district (Quad, Pavilion, Health Sciences and Gateway) and the Stride for Aggie Pride 5k loop marked on the UC Davis campus . At the UC Davis Medical Center campus there will be a 1-mile and a 1.5 mile marked path. A social marketing campaign will be developed to promote the benefits of walking and to provide individuals with strategies to walk more throughout their day. Finally, we will be offering a free, 6-week 5K training program for individuals that want to register for the annual Stride for Aggie Pride 5k on Sunday, April 29th.
