March 30 Wellpower Walk to Feature Garden Tour

Kevin Dillard, SMU’s Landscape Resource Manager, will give an informal tour of the SMU gardens on our walk, Friday, March 30. We are celebrating “Start Walking Day” at SMU in partnership with the American Heart Association. SMU boasts some of the most beautiful landscaping in the metroplex, so take this opportunity to get some exercise and learn what plants and flowers might work for you at home, in your backyard, or on your patio.

We will meet at noon on the steps of Dallas Hall. In case of rain, walkers may meet on the track at Dedman Center and we’ll schedule another walk featuring the garden tour.

This Wellpower Walk rounds out the first week of our “One Step at a Time” walking challenge, giving team and individual participants an opportunity to get in some additional steps and come together in support of walking and wellness at SMU. The deadline for registering your team for the walking challenge is Friday, March 16, 2012. The four-week walking challenge will begin on Monday, March 26, 2012.

Wellpower will also feature a final walk at noon on April 20. Participants will walk to the groundbreaking for the new Residential Commons to be held at Doak Walker Plaza. Walkers are encouraged to come a few minutes early as we will depart Dallas Hall at noon and take a “scenic route” to the groundbreaking.
