At last year’s event, Mayor Ed Lee and nine of the City’s eleven District Supervisors joined Walk SF and over 2,100 San Franciscans to celebrate Walk to Work Day at one of five ‘hubs’ across the city. For all of San Francisco that morning, pedestrian traffic increased 20% compared to the prior month!
Walk SF secured 30 discreet event coverage pieces in more than a dozen outlets including TV, radio, print and online outlets and generated a social media reach exceeding 115,000 impressions.
