OTM Challenge Kickoff

Come to our OTM Rec and Play Day!

Whether you are an On the Move Challenge veteran or new to On the Move, we are here to enjoy opportunities to work, play and move! 

TEAM KENT STATE is actively moving and competing in the National On the Move Challenge for its 4th consecutive year.  As we look for opportunities to move, we have once again looked to our campus partners at the SRWC and created the OTM Rec & Play Day scheduled from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm on April 5th.  

As we say in the On the Move world, all movement matters! No need to feel like you have to be an Olympic athlete. The only requirement is to come and have some fun. Don’t forget to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. 

All full and part-time faculty staff are invited. Stop by the registration table upon arrival to pick up your punch card. Prizes will be raffled off for Rec & Play Day participants completing and turning in a punch card. Light refreshments will also be provided to our guests.
