Volunteers Needed at Summer Parkways, July 24

July 24, 2011, North Hill Neighborhood, 10 am – 2 pm

Looking for an opportunity this summer to join your friends and neighbors and enjoy walking, running, cycling, and other forms of active transportation on city streets…all in a car-free environment? Well, you’re in luck, because Summer Parkways is back!

On Sunday, July 24, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 4 miles of roadway will be closed to automobiles and opened up to create a loop for bikes, pedestrians, skaters, and other human-powered forms of transportation. The course will run through the North Hill neighborhood, with fun events along the route.

Physical fitness activities like yoga, dance, exercise classes, bike rodeos, and martial arts will also be offered for free along the route, and there will be live music as well. Folks of all ages and abilities may enter and exit the course at any point and enjoy these activities!

You are needed!

Visit summerparkways.com <http://summerparkways.com/volunteer-opportunities/> and sign up to direct traffic, assist vendors, or provide information to participants. Your help at Summer Parkways is crucial for its success...and as a thank you you’ll receive an awesome bandana!

Volunteers are still needed for the following shifts:

9:45 am – 12:15 pm: intersection volunteer
11:45 am – 2:15 pm: intersection volunteer

Questions: Contact Kristen at summerparkways@gmail.com If you know of anyone else who may be interested in volunteering, please share this opportunity with them! This could be a great way for teenagers and students to get involved with the community over the summer break as well.
