San Francisco was the first city to launch Walk to Work Day and it’s back!
Tomorrow, plan on walking to work and you can score some FREE goodies!
From 7:30-10 am, people all over the Bay will be encouraged to walk just 15 minutes of their daily commute, so you don’t have to walk the entire way. Make sure to stop by a “Hub” somewhere in the city and enjoy some FREE stuff like coffee, snacks, backpacks, t-shirts and safety lights.
