Social Media Posts

Thank you to all who have been contributing to our social media photos. It has been a valuable way to connect by sharing how our participants are exercising across the country. Here are some of the most recent highlights:

  • Sue Lawler, Boston College, was able to get out in the blistering cold to walk her dog and go snowshoeing.
  • Jen Langlais, Fairfield University, had to be creative when icy roads kept her from her daily morning walk. She ended up taking a tough spin bike work out.
  • Leslie Timoney, Fordham University, went on a beautiful 6 mile run, through the snow and passing the wailing Darwin the cow.
  • Jackie Hendricks, SCU, gets very creative by bundling up her toddler and putting him in a laundry basket on the snow and pulling him as she hikes!
  • Blanco Delgadillo, USF, is able to take daily walks around the USF campus with her dog and child.
  • Vicki Bautista, Creighton University, takes lunchtime walks to enjoy the post deep freeze weather in Omaha.
  • Melanie Moss, John Carroll University, takes a walk through the snow with her reluctant pup at lunchtime.
  • We want to see how you're moving! Share your photos, #GoMoveChallenge,  Instagram and Facebook and you could be featured in our AJCU articles!
