Staying Active in October

October hosts #MacMoves Week. #MacMoves is a McMaster-wide initiative created to promote an active and healthy campus. We are offering unique activities, educating on health and fitness, and highlighting opportunities throughout the entire campus to get active! Incorporating movement into our days can be a challenge, and “getting active” means something different to everyone. Explore our resources on movement guidelines, the benefits of physical activity and the many different ways you can choose to get active!
