If you've gained weight during the COVID-19 pandemic, you aren't alone. The "Quarantine 15" — referring to weight gain some people have experienced since stay-at-home guidelines went into effect — is likely due to a disruption in daily routine and habits.
On Sunday October 4, 2020 the Theta Omega Health Initiative Team led by Brother Carlis Phillips and Brother Howard Patrick decided to fight back against the weight gain and guided the brothers of Omega Psi Phi on a healthy walk across the Big Four Walking Bridge.
Brother Patrick stated “The walk was a success and we had a larger turnout based on the weather than we expected. We educated the brothers about the benefits of exercise.” He went on to state “We decided to do a health walk because walking is an activity that everyone is able to do and we can social distance while we are walking. We plan on doing this again some time in November.”
We look forward to future opportunities to exercise and fellowship.
