ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville Athletics Department is inviting everyone to kick off Well-A-Bration with “A Walk with the Bulldogs” on Monday, Sept. 16 from 6:30 a.m.-7:30 a.m.


You can wear your Bulldog Blue and join UNC Asheville's student-athletes, coaches and staff for an extended walking tour of the UNC Asheville campus. Ask the coaches questions, discuss your favorite sport and feel the burn as this hour-long excursion will reveal parts of campus you may not know about. Participants should wear appropriate clothing and shoes designed for variable terrain. In case of rain, the walk will be moved to the Kimmel Arena Concourse. Meet at the “Rocky” statue for the walk with participants leaving promptly at 6:30 a.m.


Well-A-Bration is a two-day (Sept. 16-17) recognition and celebration of the roles healthful living and wellness play in the achievement of individual, campus and community well-being. Well-A-Bration engages students, faculty, staff and the community in activities, programs, presentations and special events designed to inform, educate and celebrate positive and preventive health practices.
