Join the Center for Adult Learners & Veterans, University Recreation, and other campus and community partners as we highlight various workout opportunities and special events that honor the memory of courageous fallen soldiers by completing the different workouts or attending an event in memory of their bravery.  HERO Wellness Week occurs in each traditional semester.
