Walk2Work Day this Wednesday 10th March!Home » Blog » Hazel Murray » Walk2Work Day this Wednesday 10th March!
Help promote walking to work this Wednesday and join other walkers from 7am–9am at events all over the country.
We all know the benefits of walking to work: arriving at work refreshed and exercised, decreased road congestion as well as reduced car emissions on the streets and in the atmosphere. And on Wednesday March 10 you can be rewarded for your hard work and encourage others to do the same on Walk2Work Day.
In locations all over the country events will be held to promote Walk2Work Day, so join the masses and leave the car at home. Living Streets Aotearoa is coordinating 20 events in total and walkers are encouraged to stop by to register, enjoy a complimentary breakfast snack and promote walking to work.
In Auckland there are key events at Pigeon Park (corner of Karangahape Road and Symonds Streets) and Takapuna town centre. In Wellington the key event is at Frank Kitts Park, with three other events at Courtenay Place, the Railway Station and Willis Street. In Dunedin walkers are invited to gather in the Octagon, where a train will be bringing in more people from the East Coast.
Check out the events map to see where your nearest event is, and stop by between 7am and 9am this Wednesday.
