It’s Walk to Work Day in San Francisco tomorrow and in recognition of the occasion, Walk SF is asking San Franciscans to post about their walking commute on Facebook and Twitter. Participants will not only enter to win a prize from Walk SF, but they’ll be supporting good advocacy. GJEL Attorneys will donate $25 to Walk SF for each post made.

“We’re looking forward to hearing what people notice when they walk,” said Walk SF Executive Director Elizabeth Stampe. “What are the best parts of your walk? What feels unsafe? What would encourage you to walk more?”

Even if your trip to work is too long to walk the whole way, Walk SF is encouraging commuters to walk the first or last half-mile of their trip.

You can also join Walk SF for a pre-event happy hour tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 at Ma’velous at 1408 Market Street.
