Workplace Wellness Committee, in partnership with Lancer Recreation, are inviting you to participate in the Team Poker Walk, a fun event that will conclude the Get Active! Stay Active! summer wellness challenge.

How does it work? No knowledge of poker is required! Form a team of up to 5 members, walk along a designated route and collect playing cards at different stations. At the end of the walk, teams with the best poker hand and the worst poker hand win a prize.

What if I did not participate in the summer wellness challenge, can I still sign up for the Poker Walk? Yes, of course! If you didn’t take a part in the Get Active! Stay Active! challenge, you can still join your colleagues in this fun activity!

Through this Team Poker Walk, we would also like to support the Campus Food Pantry, run by the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance. You are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item(s) such as canned soup or vegetables, nut butter, jam, boxed rice, etc. – a drop off point will be set up at the first Team Poker Walk station.


If you are interested in registering for the Team Poker Walk, registration details, rules and other information can be found on the Team Poker Walk page.

To support the Workplace Wellness Summer Challenge, Lancer Recreation has set up a special University of Windsor Employee membership for July and August that can also be used as a discount towards an additional 12-month membership, a 20% discount.
