Dust off your walking shoes. The City of Gainesville will kick off a
community health initiative called Gainesville Walks on Monday,
March 31 at 6:00pm at Fair Street School.
Mayor Danny Dunagan said the community is encouraged to Exercise,
Socialize, and find time to walk in April. “We are partnering with several
local organizations including the Newtown Florist Club, Gainesville
Parks and Recreation, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County, and
Brenau University. Walking does not require any special equipment
and it’s free! We will be focusing on five areas where Gainesville is
already walking and running: Rock Creek Greenway, Midtown
Greenway, Riverside Drive, Brenau University Mile, Fair Street
Neighborhood, or any neighborhood near you!” Mayor Dunagan said.
Maps of the routes are posted on the city’s website
http://www.gainesville.org/gainesvillewalks and walkers who
send their accomplishments to firstname.lastname@example.org will be
highlighted on the City’s Facebook page.
Prizes will be awarded to the first 50 walkers who show up for the kick
off Monday, March 31 at 6:00pm at Fair Street School.
