UCC@60: Staff and Students Walk for Healthy Lifestyles

Scores of staff and students of University of Cape Coast (UCC) have embarked on a health walk through the principal streets of the University to enhance the health of participants.

The walk forms part of events for UCC@60 anniversary celebrations which started on April 3, 2022 to be climaxed on October 20, 2022.

The walk afforded staff and students the platform to fraternise and socialise, as well as promote healthy lifestyle amongst them.

Dressed in their UCC@60 T-shirts, the participants in the walk, led by the Registrar, Mr. Jeff Onyame, commenced at the Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Adow Obeng Administration Block through the University Practice Senior High School and ended at the forecourt of the Emmanuel Adow Obeng Administration Block.
