Walk Tacoma 2015 Kicks Off Tomorrow


Spaceworks is excited to partner with Downtown On The Go again this year for their Walk Tacoma Series! The series kicks off tomorrow/Wednesday April 1 at noon in Wright Park. (Save the date for Spaceworks’ sponsored Public Art Walk on Wednesday June 3rd at noon!)

These walks are a great way to meet fellow Tacoma folks, learn new things about our fair city, get some exercise, oh and tomorrow there is free swag for the first 250 walkers!

Here is what DOTG has to say: “Celebrate National Walking Day by attending the free Walk Tacoma Kick-off in Wright Park on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at noon, with Downtown On the Go and the American Heart Association, in partnership with Metro Parks Tacoma. This event will kick-off the 2015 Walk Tacoma series and the Walk Around the World campaign. The first 250 walk participants will receive a swag bag.”
Walk Tacoma Kick-Off
The Walk Tacoma Kick-off, sponsored by Midtown Lofts, is a free 1.5 mile history walk through Wright Park and the Stadium District. It will begin at the south side of Wright Park by the lion sculptures at noon, with check-in and information booths open between 11:30 a.m. – noon.

Walk Around the World Campaign
National Walking Day will also kick-off the community-wide effort to Walk Around the World, a 24,859 mile challenge. Participants will be encouraged to walk for both health and transportation, and log their walks on the Trip Calendar at PierceTrips.com to earn prizes and be a part of the community program.

Walk Tacoma 2015 Series
Walk Tacoma 2015, sponsored by CHI Franciscan Health, is a nine event walking series held on first and third Wednesdays, from April through August.
