Webster Wellness Welcome!

Webster Wellness hopes you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a fantastic academic year at Webster University! This year’s Webster Wellness theme is “Wired for Wellness” and we already have our planning underway so want to highlight a few upcoming events:

Moonlight Ramble – August 29/30 – All Invited

Enjoy biking…under the stars? Sign up for this year’s Moonlight Ramble, the longest running nighttime bike ride in the US and an annual tradition with thousands of riders taking to the streets of St. Louis at midnight under the light of the moon.  The event starts at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday August 30th, but you’ll want to arrive on Saturday night August 29th to get set up. There is a registration and a fee associated, so you’ll want to check this out in advance. If you do decide to go, then let us know at wellness@webster.edu so we can plan a meet-up with you!
