We’re almost there… and there’s many ways to plug in!

There’s a bunch of other ways to plug into Walk Around Philadelphia besides actually joining one of the walk segments!

Feb 25 – morning sendoff @ Schuylkill Center w/ coffee & snacks & a chance to see the exhibit!

March 2 – virtual reportback: join us online and hear about this year’s adventures!
March 9 – virtual exhibit talk via Schuylkill Center

It’s been a heck of an adventure, and I’m looking forward to telling you all about it at the virtual reportback event…
One fun highlight was being joined by State Rep Joe Hohenstein (who took these two photos) and learning that not only were he & his chief of staff Tara game for joining us through one of the most daunting weather days…
… but also that, inspired by the exhibit at The Schuylkill Center, they’d organized a 5 day walk around the edges of their own district!
There’ll be a lot more to share, but in the meanwhile here’s hoping that you’re able to join us for one of the upcoming walks, in-person events and/or virtual ones!
