#WalkCLT

Thank you to everyone who joined Sustain Charlotte and OrthoCarolina for the 3rd annual #WalkCLT event! 375 came out to this fun, family-friendly initiative that encourages residents and visitors to walk, rather than drive to destinations in their area.

We took a twilight stroll to celebrate FreeMoreWest Friday, June 1, 2018 from 5-8 p.m. Read our event recap here!

About #WalkCLT

#WalkCLT is a community initiative to get your neighborhood active and walking to local destinations. In 2015, Sustain Charlotte teamed up with OrthoCarolina to bring a first-of-its-kind walking initiative to promote walking as a form of transportation.

#WalkCLT powered by OrthoCarolina is an initiative that aims to raise awareness of the role that walking can play as a mode of transportation and the many social, environmental, and economic benefits walking generates for ourselves and our community.
