San Francisco was the nation’s first city to officially launch Walk to Work Day  – walking just 15 minutes of your commute counts and your efforts be rewarded with some free goodies.

Be a part of this fun and festive day of encouragement celebrating the most healthy, sustainable form of transportation: walking.

At the 2015 event, eight of the city’s eleven District Supervisors joined Walk SF and thousands of San Franciscans celebrated Walk to Work Day at one of fourteen ‘Hubs’ across the city. For all of San Francisco that morning, pedestrian traffic increased 18% compared to the prior month.
