Stamps can be redeemed for raffle tickets at the after-party at Town Brewing Co.! Winners will be announced at 7:45 p.m. Must be present to win!

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.

The goal of this event is 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.
