The LifeFit Center @ The Beach walked it out on President’s Day with their first ever Walk-A-Thon on Monday, February 18, 2013. Members, students, and CHHS staff all joined in for two hours of walking and talking to promote the center and the many benefits of exercise. The LifeFit Center is now a proud affiliate of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus initiative and was happy to have success with their first ever event. The walkers were taken on a tour of the campus and even made a few laps around the university track. They walked approximately 4 miles in the two hour time span and took time for plenty of photo ops. Director Ayla Donlin had this to say about the event, “I was thrilled with the success of the LifeFit Center’s first Exercise is Medicine® on Campus event! We had over 30 participants from the LifeFit Center and College of Health and Human Services. We also had an entire Fitness Walking Class (around 30 students) join us to raise awareness about the benefits of physical activity. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and we got a great workout too!” The LFC plans to host more exciting Exercise is Medicine events going forward and looks forward to involving more and more of the CSULB community!
