A Great 3 Weeks!

Hello uGOers,

It has been a great 3 weeks of uGO. We have had Zumba, line dancing, and African dancing to get our blood flowing and the Food Trust, University Wellness and some doctors to get us thinking. As you attend uGO, I wanted to encourage you to keep track of yourself–what you eat and how much you exercise. We all on the uGO team want to work with you towards becoming healthier people.

I also wanted to thank you for your wonderful participation. Although I have been traveling the last two weeks, everything I have heard indicates that you, the participants, have been engaged and full of energy. uGO would be nothing if it weren’t for that!

This Saturday we have an organization coming that is very passionate about their work. Movement is Medicine describes themselves as, “a movement that was birthed to empower you to honor your body as a temple and support you on your journey to become whole.” Make sure to make your way to Saunder’s Park this Saturday at 8:30 for their comments on how to lead a healthier lifestyle, one step at a time.

See you Saturday!



It’s Coming!

Hey there everyone,

I’m just going to get right to it, uGO is kicking off on Saturday at 10:00am! I’m really excited to participate in fitness activities with all of you and I hope you are too! This Saturday we’ll have some zumba and people from the Food Trust and CHOP there for you. We will also have a health screening. Please pass the word on to your friends and RSVP at!/events/141484006057495/.
