Active Wear Wednesday Freebies and Discounts

If you're working or learning from home, every day might be active wear day! But to motivate you to put those yoga pants and running shoes to good use, we've partnered with a few local businesses to offer some freebies and discounts to UBC students, faculty, and staff. 

If these spots are in your health district, we encourage you lace up those running shoes and stroll, cycle, or speed walk over on Active Wear Wednesdays! Please be sure to wear a mask, observe social and physical distancing, and comply with all Provincial Health Orders.

Active Wear Wednesday Partners (Okanagan) 

Every Wednesday throughout February for Move UBC month, the Starbucks Kelowna Aiport Business Park near UBCO will be offering a free coffee to any student, staff or faculty member dressed in active wear between 8-10AM. To redeem a free coffee you must order inside the store cafe, not in Drive Thru. 


*Please make sure that you are wearing active wear and mentioned Active Wear Wednesday in order to receive the free coffee or discounted beverage. You may be asked to provide your UBC student/staff/faculty ID. 

Please note that Active Wear Wednesday are intended to motivate community members to get out for an active break or start to their day, within their own health authority and while observing all Provincial Health Orders to stop the spread of COVID-19. We do not recommend that those who are not within these areas commute to them.
