We hope you’ve registered your team for National Walking Day 2017 on Wednesday, April 5 from 11:30AM – 1:30PM. If you haven't yet, you can sign up here.
We're looking forward to seeing you at one of the four pit stops - just pick the one closest to you and start walking. Your group can also take advantage of the walkabout maps to enjoy your walk through the community. Like previous years, we have plenty of festivities planned at all our pit stops with giveaways from us and local vendors. Our friends at Virginia Hospital Center will host an interactive fitness table at three pit stops (Ballston, Crystal City and Rosslyn) and share information about how you can include fitness at work with tips on desk exercises and more.
Remember to bring a few business cards to enter in our two main giveaways. We're giving away a new FitBit and raffling a one night stay at the Key Bridge Marriott. Below are details of what we have planned for all pit stops. Be sure to follow us @ATPCommutes for updates.
