Join Ryerson Mood Routes: Get Moving, Get Grounded, Get Lifted

A close-up view of green grass and trees in the distance

Mood Routes, a Ryerson Student Affairs initiative, in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mood Walks program, encourages us to get outside not just for physical activity, but to de-stress, refocus, and re-ground ourselves. It’s easy to forget, in the middle of the concrete jungle that is downtown Toronto, to take time to explore the green spaces surrounding us. Even our own Kerr Quad offers a welcome escape for many from the hustle of the city and campus. Join us on Mood Routes in and around campus as a way to connect with nature, community, and your wellbeing.

Ryerson Mood Routes: Join us on walks on and around campus to connect with nature, community, and well-being.WHEN/WHERE: The inaugural Ryerson Mood Routes trip will take place Wednesday, October 26th, 12noon-1pm, meet in SLC main floor atrium.
