Bib #16852 says: We're all pedestrians some of the time.
Hardly a day goes by that we don't read of a pedestrian or cyclist being hit by a car or truck. WalkBoston is working hard to reduce that toll. Please support WalkBoston with a 2015 Boston Marathon sponsorship donation.
If you walk (with or without a four legged friend), WalkBoston is there for you. WalkBoston is a best friend to walkers, strollers, striders, streakers, sprinters, and runners -- everywhere in Massachusetts.
Safe pedestrian walkways is what WalkBoston is all about. There is a government department called MASSHIGHWAY, but no MASSWALKWAY. WalkBoston is there to try to fill some of the void, to try to bring the pedestrian viewpoint into our community infrastructure design and planning processes. It does so with very little money, and a very small staff.
WalkBoston makes walking safer and easier in Massachusetts to encourage better health, a cleaner environment and vibrant communities.
- Education and advocacy to make communities more walkable.
- Input on state and local transportation policies and designs.
- Focus on accessibility, social and physical barriers to walking.
- Safety for those for whom daily walking is a necessity: seniors, children, students, the disabled.
In 1990 WalkBoston became the first pedestrian advocacy group in the country. In 2015 WalkBoston will celebrate its 25th birthday! WalkBoston has worked to provide safe pedestrian access in communities throughout Massachusetts. Please help them with a 2015 Boston Marathon sponsorship donation. Thank you.
