Physical Wellness

Physical wellness can be achieved through regular exercise, proper nutrition, and abstaining from harmful habits such as drug use and alcohol abuse.

Developing healthy habits can add years to your life and enhance the enjoyment and quality of those years.

Wellness Walking

Take a quick break from your work, enjoy nature, socialize, and get some exercise in! The Wellness Walking Group meets outside of the northwest entrance of the Spokane Academic Center every Tuesday at 12:10 p.m. for a 30-minute walk.

All levels are welcome! Take a look at our route map here. If you have any questions or would like to be added to the Wellness Walking Group Outlook calendar invitation, please contact Bethany Fruci.
