Are you looking forward to spring? Join Occupational Health Services (OHS) and the R&W Club Frederick for the next Take a Hike Day in April. At the fall event, about 30 employees walked or jogged the 1.3-mile course around the NCI at Frederick campus during their lunch hours.

The event is designed to encourage employees to engage in physical activity, according to Sarah Hooper, manager of OHS.

“It was so wonderful to see employees walking to wellness,” said Emily Burnett, a Werner H. Kirsten student intern in OHS who helped plan the fall event.

Prizes will be given to those employees who correctly answer walking trivia questions. Prizes during the fall event included waist packs and water bottles. R&W Club members and Nymeo Federal Credit Union employees were on hand to provide water and free giveaways.
