One Big Thing - Wednesday 25 October 2017

One Big Thing is an opportunity for University of Warwick students and staff to take time out of the day to get active. What will your Big Thing be?

Wednesday 25 October 2017

All day, at any time


Join us for The Big Walk

Lunch walk 12.00pm Meet on the Piazza

Walk and enjoy the natural landscape on campus. Why not bring your lunch and eat on the go? Just make sure to bring your friends and colleagues and make it the biggest lunch walk on campus.

Night walk 9.30pm Outside Warwick Sport

Enjoy campus by torchlight with a fun and thrilling night walk. Torches will be provided.

Pledge your One Big Thing

From cycling to work or taking a lunchtime stroll, to dusting off the football boots or going for a swim. As long as it's active, it's a big thing.

Go BIG with your One Big Thing

This year we also want to see how big you can go. We took on the 500 squat challenge but your innovative big thing could be anything. This is your chance to try something new, something different, something BIG.

Make your pledge

Once you've submitted a pledge, it will appear on the Pledgee Wall of Fame.

Request a Deskercise session

Fancy a workout at your desk for you and your team? Request a visit from one of our instructors for a 15 minute deskercise session.

Requests must come from the Head of Department.

Get a Celebration poster

Shout about your activities and display your pledges. Get a Celebration poster for your office or building and promote your one Big Thing.

Be innovative and win

Think your Big Thing is a little different?

Make an innovative pledge, post you doing it to @warwicksport using #uowonebigthing and be in with the chance of winning a fun prize.

Words from the VC

"We’re doing a lot of work to create an environment that encourages participation in activity, whatever that looks like for you."
