BENEFITING: WALKBOSTON

EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

THE STORY:

"Fish Swim, Bird Fly, People Walk. It's a Human Right" - Mark Gorton

WalkBoston was created out of the belief that every community in Massachusetts needs safe walking routes and programs to encourage walking.  With the alarming increase in adult and childhood obesity, public health officials are focusing increased attention on peoples’ lack of physical activity, as well as diets.  Efforts to get people walking are now a cornerstone of chronic disease prevention programs.

WalkBoston helps transform Massachusettsʼ communities into more walkable places and reintroduces people to walking as a convenient, healthy and low cost transportation choice. We advocate for public policies and decisions in transportation, land use and real estate development that produce pedestrian and runner--friendly built environments. Our advocacy benefits everyone, but especially those who depend on walking most – people with lower incomes, elders, children, people with disabilities, and transit users. But you donʼt have to take our word for it, see why others chose to run the marathon to benefit WalkBoston as part of our RunBoston team.


“One of my favorite areas of work WalkBoston does is safe routes to school, for children. I will never forget having to run past the little pink backpack sprawled across the side of the road after my routine run took me past two little girls who were just hit on their way to school.” Holly Hanneman (2011)


“WalkBoston enhances community life. Being a full time stay at home mom of two daughters, I can appreciate the value of WalkBostonʼs work. The Iron Horse Trail in my local town, allows free access to the community to meet for a coffee walk, a safe path for our kids to walk or ride their bikes to school, say hello to our neighbors, get in our daily exercise, walk our dogs, or sell lemonade on a hot summer morning.” Mercedes Murallo (2011)
