The 2014 Faculty Staff Campaign

Going the “Extra Mile” for Giving AND Fitness

It’s that time of year to give back and support UTC. And this year you can also do something for yourself by going the “Extra Mile”. Monday through Thursday (April 8th-May 7th) you can meet a Health and Human Performance faculty member at the Development Office for a walk.  When you contribute at least $5.00 to the campaign you will receive a tumbler, pedometer and a map of four walking routes around campus. Prizes will be given each week to the walker logging the most miles. Log on to the American Heart Association website below and learn how you can register with the AHA and keep track of your mileage. Dr. Steve Underwood from the Department of Health and Human Performance will be the only person who can see the mileage and will name a winner each week.
