Having an event? We'd love to come! We'll set up an information booth to promote physical activity programming, events and activities on campus brought to you by MoveU and our partners at Sport & Rec, Hart House, and Diversity Moves Us.

Incorporate a MoveU Movement Break video into your classes or workshops to reactivate the mind and body. These 3-minute videos encourage students to take a break from sitting and get active to re-energize. Students who participate in movement breaks are better able to focus and primed for academic success!
