School partners with Healthy IU to make WIC track available for pilot program

As part of the Healthy IU initiative, the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington is proud to announce that the Wildermuth Intramural Center (WIC) track will be available for IU Bloomington employees for walking/running/moving during breaks, and/or having walking meetings on weekdays between 6am and 4pm. The pilot program will run from now through the end of the Spring Semester.

This opportunity is the result of collaborative efforts involving several campus and university partners, including the School of Public Health-Bloomington, the IUSPH Department of Kinesiology, the Division of Campus Recreational Sports, and the Healthy IU campus-wide wellness initiative.

How it works:

If you are an IU Bloomington employee and would like to participate in the program, but do not have a Recreational Sports membership, stop at the WIC member service station one time before beginning the program.

You must present your Staff ID Card and sign a waiver of liability.

Your ID will be activated immediately so that you can access the WIC track. Simply show your ID at the entrance to the track any time you wish to use it.

You will also be able to check out a lock and use day-use lockers in the main-level general locker rooms free of charge. Additionally, there are small lockers around the track where you can store personal items such as purses, small bags, wallets, etc.

You will also have the option to sign up for the “Step into Fitness” program (always free for all IU Bloomington faculty/staff). You’ll receive a free pedometer if you don't already have one.

See the Healthy IU website for more details.  

Please note that this program involves only the WIC track and does not provide access to other programs of facility spaces.
