The Stapleton Area Transportation Management Association (TMA) invites you to 2nd annual NE Walk Fest! Join us for an inspiring and fun day of walking activity in northeast Denver neighborhoods on Saturday, May 10th. The NE Walk Fest will host over 30+ free themed walking trips as well as a wide range of activities and community booths at our Holly Square Event Zone on 33rd & Holly. There will also be an exciting “Holly Square Open House” for all surrounding community Holly Square community organizations.
SCHOOL REPRESENTATION WITH TEAM DPS!
The Stapleton Foundation and Denver Public Schools are joining together to present a “NE Walk Fest Challenge” to all DPS schools in the Stapleton TMA service area of NE Denver. A $1,000 check will be presented to the top Elementary School, the top Middle School and the top High School who have the highest participation of registered walkers in the NE Walk Fest. (The formula is as follows: It will be the highest percentage of registrations for a specific school, based on the school’s total population of students and staff projected for the 2015/16 school year.)
The NE Walk Fest event is designed to increase neighborhood walking behavior, promote pedestrian safety, and educate participants on neighborhood walkability within and throughout NE Denver. By partnering with local businesses and a spectrum of community organizations, NE Walk Fest aims to raise awareness that walking creates more vibrant and safe neighborhoods while improving personal, social and communal health.
Our event will officially kick-off at 9AM at 33rd & Holly (in NE Park Hill) in front of the Pauline Robinson Library. Check-in will open at 8:30AM. Please visit our walking trips page to register and sign-up for one (or two) to learn about all of the exciting opportunities available.
