The UT Dallas Campus Wellness Committee remains dedicated to the health and well-being of all UT Dallas faculty, staff and students during this time of transition due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have provided the list of resources below related to multiple areas of health and wellness, and encourage the UT Dallas community to incorporate health and wellness activities into their daily schedules. Please also continue to check the University’s official COVID-19 information webpage for additional resources and updates for the UTD community.

Homecoming Virtual 5K

We invite alumni, parents, students, and their families around the world to participate by running or walking a 5K in their communities to promote wellness and celebrate the spirit of UTD’s Homecoming. We encourage you to join fellow Healthy Comets virtually, and complete your 5K with us on Pi Day! But don’t worry…you can complete it on your own schedule, anytime during the month of March.

Register today to receive a Homecoming Virtual 5K t-shirt, race bib, UTD-themed medal and more*. Best of all, $10 of every non-student registration directly supports the UTD Student Emergency Fund!

Celebrate your practice times and 5K completion with Healthy Comets around the world by using #UTDHomecoming5K in your posts!

*Residents of the contiguous U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii only.
