Get out, get healthy, get involved.

Get active and support the community in one of many great upcoming walks.

Along with the first cool fronts and perfect outdoor weather, fall brings many health-related walks, runs and races to the region. To foster awareness and support our communities, UTMB Health sponsors or is involved in many of these events. We’d like to invite our students, faculty, staff and community to participate. It’s a great opportunity to get outdoors, get some exercise and fresh air, and spend time with your colleagues, family and friends—all for a great cause. If you would like to join a UTMB Health team or learn more about these events, please visit the links or contact one of the team coordinators listed below.
