An event celebrating the launch of Bobcat Stride, a new community initiative for local senior community members who need a safe, warm place to exercise during the cold winter months.

The event will include Quinnipiac president Judy Olian, as well as local town leaders and start in the auditorium lobby on the North Haven Campus. Walkers from area senior citizens centers also have been invited.

The program, which is free and open to members of the public 50 years of age and over, will officially run from 6-8 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning on Friday, February 25.

“The idea came from law school dean Jen Brown and is designed around the concept of mall walking,” said Bethany Zemba, the university’s vice president for strategy and community relations and chief of staff. “We are so pleased to be able to provide a safe place for the seniors of our community to walk during often cold and icy winter months.”

Quinnipiac’s Age Friendly University Committee has helped map out a safe walking route on the second floor of the Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences building. Each loop is a quarter mile. All participants will also receive a reusable bag, water bottle and membership pin.

Quinnipiac faculty, staff and students also are welcome to participate. For more information or to register for the program, contact Karla Natale, associate vice president of community partnerships, at karla.natale@qu.edu or (203) 582-5369.
