Walk to Work Day!

On April 7th, Warriors Ground joined Walk San Francisco, a pedestrian advocacy organization that aims to make San Francisco a more livable and walkable city, hosted their annual Walk to Work Day. Walk to Work Day celebrates the most healthy, sustainable form of transportation: walking! A large component of Walk to Work Day involves advocacy efforts for Vision Zero, a campaign to end all pedestrian injuries and fatalities in San Francisco by 2024.

The Warriors were proud to be part of the action by hosting one of 15 neighborhood “hubs” located throughout the city. Warriors Ground SF and volunteers from Walk SF were out bright and early at Reveille Café in Mission Bay to encourage walking, promote Vision Zero, and recruit people to be part of the movement for safer streets in San Francisco. Everyone who stopped by the Mission Bay hub received a Walk San Francisco t-shirt, free Clipper Cards, and a free cup of coffee courtesy of Reveille. 

Walk SF outreach director Natalie Burdick had this to say, "As Mission Bay and the Dogpatch continue to grow, its important promote walking as the healthiest, most sustainable, and fun way to get around in these neighborhoods. We're pleased to partner with Warriors and Réveille Coffee Co. to host the first ever Walk to Work Day Hub in this part of San Francisco. Walking as little as 15 minutes to and from work improves everyone's health, cuts traffic and fights climate change, as well as increases residents' awareness about the need for safer streets."
