Watch out! Clear the roads and parks! Georgia Bulldogs around the world are on the move! This year marks the beginning of an Alumni Association partnership with the UGA Obesity Initiative called Dawgs on the Move.
UGA launched the Obesity Initiative in January 2012 to tackle Georgia’s multi-faceted obesity problem through treatment, prevention and research. The UGA Alumni Association decided to partner with the Initiative in its worthy endeavor by creating a special program to encourage UGA alumni and friends to participate in physical activities. This program, Dawgs on the Move, will hopefully inspire alumni and their friends and family to participate in organized run/walk/jog races, take a bike ride, play touch football (in their Bulldogs jerseys, of course), hike, join an athletic team or simply take a walk after a meal.
As an avid runner, I am looking forward to the Albany Marathon & Half Marathon, one of the top Boston Marathon qualifying races in the country. This year, I am excited to not only be running in the race, but also hosting the first Albany Pre-Race Carb Up Dinner on Friday, March 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church on W. Edgewater Drive.
If you are going to be in the area for the race (or live nearby and just want a delicious meal), I hope you will join me for the first Dawgs on the Move event. The dinner is only $15 and you can register online. I promise you won’t leave hungry!
If you can’t make it to the dinner, there is the Dawg Trot 5K on March 16 in Athens and the Hobnail Boot Camp for Atlanta-area young alumni on Saturday, March 23, in Piedmont Park! Registration is open for both events.
If you and/or your family are “moving” on your own, why not send us a photo? We’d love to promote the Dawgs on the Move program to other alumni with pictures of actual alumni staying healthy. Please email those photos to Margaret Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, stay healthy and active, friends. I hope to see you at the Albany Pre-Race Carb Up Dinner next Friday!
On a side note: the 2013 Alumni Leadership Assembly begins today in Athens and will continue through Sunday. We are welcoming around 40 alumni chapter leaders back to campus for a fun-filled (and rainy) weekend. We’ll share some photos on our Twitter and Facebook pages this weekend!
UGA is hosting its 3rd Annual TEDxUGA event in Tate Grand Hall on Friday, March 27 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. What is TEDx? TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUGA, where x = independently organized TED event. At the TEDxUGA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Several UGA alumni will present at this year's TEDxUGA event:
- Lemuel LaRoche (BSW '02, MSW '03)
- Michelle Blue (BBA '13)
- Julie Rushmore (PHD '13, DVM '17)
- Chris Dixon (ABJ '89, MMC '95)
- Lisa Taylor (JD '01)
Won't be in Athens or missed out on tickets for the event? TEDxUGA will be livestreamed begining at 2:00 p.m. on Friday. This will be a great opportunity for alumni and friends to participate and engage from across the country. You can also interact with the event on Twitter.
The University of Georgia will host its second annual Return to the Arch Alumni Seminar, a three-day educational gathering for UGA alumni and friends, from May 1-3, 2015. This year's theme is "Food for Thought" and will feature lectures, tours and interactive seminars that showcase the best that UGA has to offer. Come prepared with open minds and empty stomachs as you experience a fun, food-filled weekend on campus.
Seminar highlights include:
- A reception and dinner with Food Network star and alumnus Alton Brown (AB '04)
- Exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of campus
- Presentations from leading UGA faculty members
- Address by Peter Dale (ABJ '99), owner/chef of The National in Athens, 2012 Food & Wine's "People's Best New Chef-Southeast"
- A farm-to-table dinner under the stars on Herty Field
The registration fee for this three-day seminar is $290 per person, which includes all meals, beverages, transportation, seminars and special activities. It does not include hotel accommodations.
A supplemental dining package for non-attendee spouses/guests may be purchased for $115. This includes the Friday reception and dinner with Alton Brown, the Saturday reception and Ffarm-to-table dinner on Herty Field, and a local lunch market on Sunday.
Registration for the Dawg Trot 5K for Scholarships has been extended to Monday, March 16.
Join hundreds of UGA alumni and friends for one of Athens' largest 5K races on Saturday, March 21! This year, the UGA Alumni Association is proud to announce the Dawg Trot 5K for Scholarships will raise awareness and funds for student scholarships at UGA. Your participation ensures a bright future for students!
