Exercise is Medicine on Campus Month "For your Heart" completed
Well done to those that participated in our October Exercise is Medicine on Campus Month –For your Heart: a month full of online content, knowledge bits, online workouts, running tips and health expert tips.
To expand the promotion for physical activity within the HKU community, we held our first Halloween 5k Fun Run and Walk event. The participants, including the Department of Nursing and the School of Public Health, joined this walking and running event by starting at various locations around HKU campus, and in small groups reached the 5K finish at the Stanley Ho Sport Centre.
This event supplemented our Virtual 5K Challenge, with more than 550 submissions of 5k running or walking sessions from staff and students throughout the month, that could be completed anywhere or anytime. Some impressive records were reached with some staff and student participants completing 5K every day in the month of October. For a video summary of the month please click below.
Thank you to all that joined or viewed our content this month. We look forward to bringing you more physical activity opportunities so stay tuned on Facebook and our Website throughout the year in order for staff and students to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle.
