The kick-off to the Walk Tacoma series on Wednesday, April 4 was a great success. It included both a “history walk” led by Melissa McGinnis and Erik Hanberg of Metro Parks and a “power walk” led by Paige Van Der Vliet of Tacoma Living Fit. More than 85 people participated in the event at Wright Park, a 70 percent increase in participation from 2011!
This event, co-sponsored by Downtown On the Go and the American Heart Association, encouraged people to take a break in their day, exercise, enjoy the beauty of downtown, and learn more about the history of the community.
Join Downtown On the Go as we travel to different neighborhoods in downtown Tacoma for the 2012 Walk Tacoma series. The next walk, the Brewery District to South Downtown, is scheduled for Friday, April 20 at noon. The walks are free, and there is no need to pre-register.
