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.


Here's the impact of #WalkCLT 2019 by the numbers:

  • 90,000 calories burned
  • 990 pounds of carbon dioxide prevented (due to walking instead of driving)
  • 900 miles walked
  • 300+ participants
  • 15 raffle prizes
  • 14 local businesses offering great deals
  • 13 amazing volunteers
  • 4 event partners including #WalkCLT sponsor, OrthoCarolina 
  • 3 exciting activities hosted along the greenway
  • 2 live bands
  • 1 incredible evening celebrating walking as a form of sustainable transportation! 


Thank you to our 2020 project partners!
