Walk to Work Day

 

Make local history with us! Help us celebrate national Walk to Work Day on April 6th, 2012, the event's inaugural year in Portland.
 
The WPC, BTA, and other partners are organizing an event with four starting points in various parts of the city. We will start with some small deliciousness at each meet-up and then walk downtown, converging at City Hall for coffee and light breakfast before your work- or play day.
 
Following are the meet-up areas. We will have specific locations soon:
  • 34th & SE Belmont
    • Meet 7:15am, walk 7:30am
  • 26th & SE Clinton
    • Meet 7:30am, walk 7:45am
  • Leftbank Building (240 N. Broadway)
    • Meet 7:30am, walk 7:45am
  • Lower MacLeay Park
    • Meet 7:15am, walk 7:30am

This event coincides with Public Health Week, a time to unite around a critical public health issue and focus our collective energy on the singular goal of helping people live longer, happier, healthier lives.
 
National Walk to Work Day is held the first Friday of April in the USA, beginning in 2004. For more information about the annual national event, I'd invite you to check out this link: http://walking.about.com/od/pedestrians/p/walktoworkday.htm
