Wellness Week aims to engage students by introducing new activities to promote all-around health through out the week.

Drs. John Delony and Sam Cook Chapel forum Monday night led by. There will also be a walk around the Lunsford Foundation Trail on Tuesday.

The Monday night Chapel forum will be held in Moody at 7 p.m. followed by a farmer’s market.

Tuesday’s Wellness Walk will be from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., replacing Chapel for the day.  The walk will start at the Hunter Welcome Center and students will be able to sign in there for Chapel credit.

There will be booths set up around the trail which promote physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.

The Lunsford walk will consist of “everything encompassed in the whole realm of wellness,” said Kerri Hart, associate director and assistant professor for the department of kinesiology and nutrition.

The festivities by the Lunsford Trail include free Zumba class and boot camp.

This year’s theme includes ideas from the book “Every Body Matters” by Gary Thomas, which addresses all aspects of wellness and the role Christians have in well-being.

Elizabeth Lurz, junior business major from San Antonio, will have a booth on Tuesday representing the ACU Cycling Club. There will be bikes along with some fellow ACU cyclists at her booth. Lurz said the Cyclist Club wants to “represent a way to have an active and healthy lifestyle.”

Other groups, such as the outdoor club, runner club and the counseling center, will also set up booths around the trail.
