VIDEO: Joggin’ With Josh 2019

The 10th annual jog hosted by Joshua Wynne shows UND ‘practicing what we preach’ regarding healthy lifestyles

The 10th annual Joggin’ with Josh was held on Sept. 24, bringing together the campus and Grand Forks community for a 5K/10K/one-mile walk, jog or run.

Josh is Joshua Wynne, the UND Interim President, Vice President for Health Affairs, and Dean of the School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS). Joggin’ with Josh began in 2010 when Dr. Wynne reminded SMHS medical and health sciences students not only to encourage their future patients to live healthful lifestyles but also “practice what they preach.”

Presented by the SMHS, in conjunction with UND Healthy Campus Week, this public event was free and open to everyone.

Countless studies have shown that the benefits of regular exercise are many and varied. From reducing one’s risk of heart disease and diabetes, to controlling weight and improving mental health, exercise can add healthy years to a person’s life.
