This year’s Healthy Week has been a fantastic success. We had a 60% increase in organised activity and double the attendance figures from last year.
Nearly 200 members of staff joined up to be a Healthy Week Hero! They helped organised lots of their own activities throughout the week. Overall, 160 hours of activity were organised over seven days with 1,036 people taking part.
Our Healthy Week Heroes have done a fantastic job! Everyone was out encouraging colleagues to get involved and consider their own health and well-being.

The free rollerskiing taster at Bodington Circuit was a great success, with both sessions fully booked.
Activities on campus
Although Healthy Week has come to an end, there are still plenty of activities to get involved in around campus. Many of the activities on the programme take place regularly each week.
Visit The Edge for a swim or sign up to one of their ‘learn to courses’. The Chaplaincy is open regularly for people to go to relax in a quiet space and the Sustainability Garden and LUU Roof Garden have weekly volunteering sessions. You can also do some regular exercise with the Get Out, Get Active team which organises casual lunchtime runs, yoga, weekend trips and lots more.
The free family event, HSBC UK Let’s Ride Leeds (formerly Sky Ride and City Ride), will also be returning to Leeds on Sunday 2 September. Read more about it and save the date!
