With fall upon us, we want to encourage employees to get outside and be active. We invite you to join the “Walk It Out!” UMKC Employee Walking Club!

Employees can log their participation on a Walking Log and if you complete an average of 2 walks per week between Tuesday, September 6th  through Friday, December 2nd, you will be entered to win a $100 gift card for new walking shoes or fitness gear!
