Upcoming Wellness Events
This year's theme is "Wired for Wellness."

This year’s Webster Wellness theme is “Wired for Wellness” and we already have planning underway. Here are highlights for a few upcoming events:

Moonlight Ramble – Aug. 29/30 – All Invited

Enjoy biking…under the stars? Sign up for this year’s Moonlight Ramble, the longest running nighttime bike ride in the US and an annual tradition with thousands of riders taking to the streets of St. Louis at midnight under the light of the moon. The event starts at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30, but you’ll want to arrive on Saturday night Aug. 29 to get set up. There is a registration and a fee associated, so you’ll want to check this out in advance. 

If you do decide to go, then let us know at wellness@webster.edu so we can plan a meet-up with you!
