That’s right, Walk to Work Day is coming up, and you can participate to win prizes and improve your city!

If you walk to work and post about it online on April 6, GJEL will donate $25 to Walk SF! Your commute will directly support advocacy to make San Francisco better for walking. Plus, you’ll be entered to win great prizes: $50 Sports Basement gift certificates and $150 wellness gift certificates from San Francisco Acupuncture.

Here’s how to participate:

First, be sure to like Walk SF on Facebook and/or follow Walk SF on Twitter so we can direct-message you if you win!

And come out the night before to get ready:

  • Pre-Walk to Work Day Happy Hour
    Thursday, April 5, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
    Ma’velous, 1408 Market Street
    Come get a drink and plan your walk with a map, or just drop by to say hi. You’ll get a gift card for a free coffee from Peet’s to power your walk in the next day, you can buy an “I Walk SF” t-shirt to wear with pride, and you can win more special prizes at the event!

Work really far from home? Or over a body of water? Never fear. You do not have to walk over the Bay Bridge. (Though we’d like to make that possible.) Just walk the first or last half-mile (or more) and tell us about it.

After all, every commute begins and ends with walking, so you walk to work in one way or another every day — but this is your opportunity to take more time and really look around and enjoy your city. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to notice: What parts of the walk are great? What feels unsafe or unfriendly? What would make you do this more? Tell Walk SF!
