Healthy Week 2018: thank you

This year’s Healthy Week has been a fantastic success, with a 60% increase in organised activity and double the attendance figures from last year.

Healthy Week balloon June 2018

Nearly 200 members of staff joined up to be a Healthy Week Hero and organised their own activities throughout the week. Overall, 160 hours of activity were organised during seven days with 1,036 people taking part.  

Our Healthy Week Heroes have done a fantastic job of encouraging colleagues to get involved and consider their own health and wellbeing.

Activities on campus

Despite Healthy Week coming to an end, there are still activities to get involved in around campus. Many of the activities on the programme take place regularly each week.

Visit The Edge for a swim or sign up to one of their ‘learn to courses’. The Chaplaincy is open regularly for people to go to relax in a quiet space and the Sustainability Garden and LUU Roof Garden have weekly volunteering sessions. You can also do some regular exercise with the Get Out, Get Active team which organises casual lunchtime runs, yoga, weekend trips and lots more.

The free family event, HSBC UK Let’s Ride Leeds (formerly Sky Ride and City Ride), will also be returning to Leeds on Sunday 2 September. Read more about it and save the date!
