Walking Wednesdays

What are Walking Wednesdays?
Walking Wednesdays promote walking for transportation, health, and community well-being. They can be whatever you want them to be!

Who can participate?
Businesses, organizations, schools, clubs, individuals

What do I do?
The possibilities are endless! Here are a few ideas. Whatever you do, feel free to download and use the Walking Wednesday logo and connect via social media (#walkingwednesday).

  • Promote and attend a Downtown On the Go Walk Tacoma event (1st Wednesday of the month April – Sept)
  • Host a walk at work at lunchtime
  • Hold a walking meeting on Wednesday
  • Identify a meeting point for a group walk to (or from) work
  • Provide an incentive for walking to work
  • Add a walking article to your employee newsletter or bulletin board

Why Wednesdays?
We thought it had a nice ring! And we know we’re not the first to use it but we’re hoping you’ll help us spread the word and expand the effort.
