The University of Leeds has been awarded the Walk Friendly Workplace accreditation!

Walking is one of the easiest, healthiest ways to get around and can save you lots of money! To reap the health benefits of being more active, aim to walk 10,000 steps a day, which can burn up to 400 calories. Keep track of your step count with an activity tracker watch or download an app to you phone.
