Message from Mayor Barrett

Last summer, I launched my Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days Challenge, a citywide effort to encourage people of all ages to add physical activity to their daily routines. Over those 100 days, participants logged more than 26,000 miles and joined dozens of walks throughout the city.


Starting June 1st, we’re at it again. Whether you walk on your own, in a group, or join one of the many community walks, remember that every step counts. Regular physical activity has been shown to help control weight and lower risk for heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and depression. Even better, it might just help you live longer.


So get up, get out, and join the movement. I hope to see you out and moving this summer!

Walking Safety

Walking Safety

Whenever and wherever you walk, keep these safety tips in mind.

  • Be on the safe side.
    It’s safest to walk on a sidewalk or designated trail. If you must walk in the street, walk facing traffic. If going out for a walk alone, be sure that someone knows where you are going.
  • Be street smart.
    Cross the street at designated crosswalks and be careful at intersections or on busy roads where drivers may not yield to pedestrians while turning.
  • Be safe at night.
    Increase your visibility by carrying a flashlight and wearing reflective clothing.
