Walk to Work Day is this Friday, and GJEL is excited to partner with Walk SF to encourage people all across the city to conduct their daily commute on foot. For everyone who walks to work and shares it on either Facebook or Twitter, GJEL will be donating $25 to Walk SF in order to directly support pedestrian advocacy and make the city safer for walking.

In addition to helping secure a donation to Walk SF simply by Tweeting or sharing the fact that you walked to work, Walk SF will also be giving away prizes to several lucky participants.

Here’s how it works:

1) Walk to work on Friday, April 6th and Tweet about it using the hashtag #walk2workSF or in your Facebook status.

2) Follow Walk SF on Twitter or Like them on Facebook so they can contact you if you win.

It’s really that simple! Just by participating in Walk to Work Day (and sharing it online) you’ll be eligible to win prizes from Walk SF including $50 Sports Basement gift certificates and $150 wellness gift certificates from San Francisco Acupuncture.

Also, for anyone wishing to meet a few likeminded people prior to Walk to Work Day, Walk SF will be hosting a Happy Hour on Thursday, April 5th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Ma’velous. The event details are listed on the Walk SF website, and anyone who attends will receive a gift card from Peet’s Coffee so they can fuel their walk to work with a fresh cup of Joe.

Official Contest Rules:

Anyone who walks to work and mentions it on either Facebook or Twitter (using the hashtag #walk2workSF) will be eligible to win. All winners will be chosen at random and participants must follow Walk SF on Twitter or like them on Facebook so they can be notified if selected. For each person who shares their participation in Walk to Work Day through Facebook or Twitter, GJEL will make a $25 donation to WalkSF (up to $2,000.00) to help advocate for pedestrian safety.
