Walk Tacoma Series Kicks Off in Wright Park

NEW – Grover from Sesame Street LIVE will be making a special appearance at our Walk Tacoma Kick-Off!

On Wednesday, April 2 Downtown On the Go and the American Heart Association are coming together to host a walking event in celebration of National Walking Day.  This event will kick-off Downtown On the Go’s 2014 Walk Tacoma series sponsored by Franciscan Health System.

The Stadium Walk, sponsored by the Stadium Business District, will start on the south end of Wright Park by the lion sculptures at noon, and continue for 1.5 miles through Wright Park and the Stadium District.  Along the route, participants will learn about the history of Wright Park, Stadium High School, and the many churches in the area.

Check-in for the walk will begin at 11:30am, with snacks, healthy lifestyle and commute information, and swag bags for the first 200 participants.  There is no pre-registration necessary, just check-in at the Downtown On the Go tent before the noon walk.

The 2014 Walk Tacoma series is an eight event walking series held on the first and third Wednesdays, from April through August.  The fun, themed walks, now in their fifth year, encourage downtown employees and residents to exercise and enjoy the outdoors by discovering the different walking routes and parks in downtown Tacoma.
