More than a hundred students, staff, faculty and employees on the Florida Campus did their part to help promote wellness and Palmer College during their own Step Up, Florida! event, Feb. 21. This is the first year for the College to take part in the statewide project, which encourages physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

Sponsored by the Florida Department of Health, Step Up, Florida! encourages organizations in every county of the state to develop their own 30-minute fitness activity. Palmer’s event was a onemile walk that started at the campus and circled Port Orange’s City Center lake before returning back to the campus.

“We had an exceptional response to the program,” said Director of Student Services Melissa Lingo. “It was just good to see faculty, staff and students all coming together to support healthy living.”
