This year’s Total WellBeing Expo gathered nearly 700 UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and staff for an afternoon filled with great conversations, smiles and swag. Employees enjoyed the bustling wellness resource fair, wellness checks, fitness classes, chair massages, a cooking demo, friendly competition in the play zone and entertainment by the Bouncing Bulldogs jump rope team.

Impressive hole-in-one putts from the 8-foot line were made by Stephen from Finance and Operations, Shayla Evans-Hollingsworth from OHR-EHRA Personnel Administration and Scarlett Lucas from the Division of Comparative Medicine. The all-star hula hoop champion was Isabelle Schenkel from the University Library with a remarkable hula hoop time of 20 minutes and 52 seconds!

Thank you to our partners and volunteers. Carolina Dining Services opened Lenoir Dining Hall for the event and provided over 100 discounted lunches to employees. They also presented how to make a delicious five spice farro breakfast bowl at the in-person cooking demonstration with nearly 70 participants and livestreamed the session.

UNC Campus Recreation, UNC Gillings Culture of Health and community partners provided in-person and virtual fitness classes to nearly 100 people. Classes included boxing, exercise with Get Real & Heal, full body strength, restore yoga, Pilates, virtual gentle yoga and standing core abs.
