Get Fit, Don't Sit Day - May 12

Research shows that sitting for long periods of time increases the risk of health complications, so it is recommended to break up sitting time with a few minutes of light physical activity every 30 to 60 minutes. At Kent State University, we value the health of our community and provide opportunities for staff and faculty to get up and move.

Join Employee Wellness and Recreation & Wellness Services on May 12, for Get Fit, Don't Sit Day, an outdoor event featuring an open walk, Poker Walk, and Poker Walk Plus at the track and field behind DeWeese Health Center.

Whether you are coming to stretch your legs, walk, run, or do a full workout, let’s get on the move together for Get Fit, Don’t Sit Day. There will be light refreshments, and all participants will be entered into our prize drawings.

Registration is preferred so that in the event of adverse weather registrants can be notified that all activities will be moved to the track on the upper level of the Student Recreation & Wellness Center. Learn more and register here.

For questions related to health and wellness offerings for faculty and staff, contact Employee Wellness at, or 330-672-0392.
