Charitable Walks

We have a new exciting opportunity, which incorporates BC's mission of being "men and women for others" into our HEALTHY YOU program.

Join fellow BC employees in a walk for one of the following great causes! To join a team, please contact a Team Leader listed below. They will assist you with the registration process.  All participants will receive a complementary BC t-shirt. T-shirts will be distributed by Team Leaders on the day of the walk. Please note that any registration fees and/or fundraising requirements are to be incurred by participants.

We are still looking for Team Leaders for a few of the walks. If you are interested in being the Team Leader, please contact Suzanne Lawler at suzanne.lawler.2@bc.edu Team Leaders function as the point person for their walk, under the team name "Boston College HEALTHY YOU team.” In addition to receiving a complimentary BC t-shirt, Team Leaders will also receive a BC baseball cap.

While steps will only be counted towards the WAC competition from charitable walks that fall between Oct-Nov and Apr-May, all participants receive the benefit of getting exercise and walking for a good cause!
