Healthy You Programs



Boston College's Charitable walk campaign marches on this year as we continue to incorporate 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 complimentary 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 walks. If you are interested in being the Team Leader, please contact Sue Lawler at 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!


Upcoming Charitable Walks

Employees are encouraged to participate and invited to volunteer to lead a BC team in local charitable walks. To volunteer as a team leader contact Healthy You at 617-552-3336 and we will supply your team with BC t-shirts. Please note that any registration fees and/or fundraising requirements will be paid by participants.

Also, please contact us if you know of a charitable walk that we don't have listed!
