WalkBoston Annual Celebration

  • MIcrosoft NERD Center One Memorial Drive Cambridge, MA United States (map)

The following is an independent event by one of Common Boston's partner organizations. Though not affiliated with CB, we hope you can attend.

The WalkBoston annual celebration is held to celebrate our achievements and to recognize the contributions from our board members, individual and corporate members, and supporters. The festive gathering provides an opportunity for walkers to mingle with the leaders in pedestrian advocacy, while the formal program includes remarks from the WalkBoston Executive Director followed by a featured guest speaker. The presentation of Golden Shoe Awards is an integral part of the annual meeting. The Golden Shoes recognize individuals, agencies, municipalities and companies exemplifying the ideals of WalkBoston’s mission.

Scott Bricker, the executive director of America Walks, will be our featured speaker. We'll also honor the work of Golden Shoe Award winners. This year's honorees: 

  • Sarah Freeman: Jamaica Plain walking advocate
  • Mayor Gary Christenson & Sharon Santillo: Malden ped activists
  • Revere Walk to School Champions
  • Karin Valentine Goins: WalkBike Worcester co-founder
