Most people agree health is an important part of living. However, many also feel consistent exercise regimens have declined in recent years.

This is why Lauren Wilkinson, assistant director of services at University Recreation, started APSU’s chapter of Run @ Work Day three years ago with Melony Shemberger, assistant director of communication in APSU’s Public Relations Department.

“We just wanted to get people moving and share our love of fitness and wellness with the APSU community,” Wilkinson said.

“This event is all about getting people to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives, and maybe people will learn that daily physical activity is extremely important to their overall wellness.”

Run @ Work Day is a national event designed to get people active for 30 minutes — the daily recommendation of physical activity — during the workday.

Claudia Wanner, “Boot Camp” instructor and wellness assistant at the Foy, is also passionate about this event.
