A Walk for Jonathan Belton: Celebrating Health & Wellness and History in Grier Heights

Join the Grier Heights Community Improvement Organization and Sustain Charlotte's Community Corps for a fun family-friendly 1.5 mile walk through one of Charlotte's most vibrant historic neighborhoods! We'll celebrate the neighborhood's history, active transportation, and health & wellness while honoring the memory of devoted community leader Jonathan Belton.

You'll enjoy:

  • A clearly marked and safe walking route.
  • Friendly volunteers and residents sharing the neighborhood's history along the walk.
  • Health and wellness activities at the Community Center.
  • Info about active transportation and a fun kid's activity at the Sustain Charlotte table.
