Commuters are being asked to leave their cars and, well, every other mode of transportation, to get back to basics and walk to work on Friday.
April 6 is National Walk to Work Day, an event that takes place every year on the first Friday of April.
Walk SF, a local pedestrian advocacy organization, is encouraging workers to Tweet or post to Facebook their experiences walking to their jobs. For every online post that mentions Walk to Work, GJEL, a local law firm, will donate $25 to Walk SF. Commuters who participate in the plan will get a chance to win a $50 gift certificate from Sports Basement and a $150 gift plan from San Francisco Acupuncture.
More details about the plan can be found online at the Walk SF’s website.
