SHEPHERDSTOWN, WV — Shepherd University will kick off its new R.A.M. Initiative, a walking/running path around campus, on Friday, October 15, at 4 p.m. on the Midway next to the Student Center.
The R.A.M. Initiative was developed by School of Recreation, Sport, and Exercise Science faculty in 2020 to encourage and enhance healthy lifestyles, mental and environmental wellness opportunities, and social comradeship among Shepherd and the community. R.A.M. is an acronym for Ready, Aim, Move and is applicable to any behavioral, mental, or physical goal. It is a collaborative initiative incorporating wellness and education.
R.A.M. aims to involve campus and community members, encourage a healthier lifestyle, make Shepherd a campus that embraces all aspects of wellness, including mental, social, physical, emotional, and environmental, and lead the state in the battle against obesity and other chronic diseases.
