How can you celebrate Walk to Work Day in your office?

Walk to Work Day is the perfect time to encourage your employees to see how easy, fun, and energizing it can be to integrate walking into their daily lives.

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!

This year, you can promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and help your entire team get energized by enjoying more of their everyday travels on foot. It’s easy — Walk SF has prepared a checklist and Employer Toolkit with all the resources you need for a successful Walk to Work Day.

Earn bragging rights all year long by winning the Golden Millipede Award, given to the workplace with the most commuters walking on Walk to Work Day! Get started now when you download a FREE Employer Toolkit.
