Walk San Francisco's Peak2Peak Fundraiser
|September 25, 2009||Posted by jamie under Events, Transportation & Ped Safety||
Secondarily to my Rincon Hill Neighborhood Association efforts, I help San Francisco’s pedestrian advocacy group Walk San Francisco with their web site and e-mail news. Walk San Francisco has a fundraiser coming up on Saturday, October 24th that I want to tell you about. As you probably know, I believe pedestrian safety is a major issue for the Rincon Hill neighborhood as more people move in and yet the City does not modify the streetscapes to slow cars down and make it safer for the growing Rincon Hill population – it is THE reason I started this blog and advocate for the Rincon Hill neighborhood.
Go to this link to learn more and to sign up to enjoy a walk in the City from one peak to another – and to support Walk San Francisco’s efforts to make the streets safer and more accessible for everyone who gets around by foot.
This is no ordinary walk in the park!
The fifth annual Peak to Peak Walk is a 12 mile challenge that will inspire even the most avid walker. You’ll get a unique view of San Francisco’s skyline, stairways, paths, parks, and monuments—all while raising money for Walk San Francisco’s vital pedestrian safety and advocacy work.
Join us as we meander up and down along the spine of the city from Mt. Davidson to Coit Tower, with 15 different peaks along the way. In addition to dirt trails and stunning vistas, the walk also features a delicious gourmet lunch and the chance to win great prizes.
From climbing the slopes of Mt. Olympus in the morning to enjoying the view from Coit Tower in the afternoon, this full-day walk will give you a whole new perspective on San Francisco.
