We’re going to have a field day

Seen pictures of “Field Day” from earlier times at our university – before it was even called UNCG?

Well, get ready for a decidedly healthy dose of nostalgia. “Healthy” is the key word.

Come out to HealthyUNCG’s 1st Annual Employee Field Day on Wednesday, April 29 (Reading Day), from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in Foust Park. There are four events that will be repeating every hour.

11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m. – Hula Hoop contest
11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:15 p.m. – Spooner race
11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. – Water balloon relay
11:45 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 1:45 p.m. – Ball toss

Food and drinks will be provided as well as prizes for winners of each event. The Guilford County Animal Shelter will also have a truck on the College Ave side of Foust park for donations. See items needed at http://staffsenate.uncg.edu/?attachment_id=224.

HealthyUNCG typically does a “stress-relief” event this time of year. “For this day, we hope to give employees a chance to relieve some stress and have fun with some nostalgic competitions, as well as featuring items from our Fitness Lending Library in some of the events, to showcase the idea that physical activity can be ‘play!’,” says Stefanie Milroy, director of HealthyUNCG and instructor in Public Health Education.
This field day is in partnership of HealthyUNCG and UNCG Staff Senate.
