Faculty and staff are encouraged to once again sign up for the Annual Poker Walk, which this year will feature both in-person and virtual participation options.

Poker WalkCommunity members familiar with the event will recall that walkers collect poker chips from attendees at stations along an established walking route and trade them in for a hand of playing cards. Prizes will be awarded for the top three hands, as well as best team costume, most enthusiastic team and best team name.

This year’s 11th annual Poker Walk will both start and end at the OU Recreation Center. To maintain social distancing for in-person participation, team time slots will be required. All participants, whether in-person or virtual, will be eligible to win prizes.

Faculty and staff interested in registering for the event can do so at myrecwell.oakland.edu. Visitors can log in using their NetID username and password, and should then click on "Wellness Programs" and then "Employee Wellness." Those seeking additional information should contact Caitlyn Hennings at chennings@oakland.edu.
