Have a great Memorial Day, even if “long weekend” has become somewhat meaningless. Get out there and take a walk, ride a bike, count your steps and miles, and donate to our virtual walk- or bike-athon fundraiser – half of all proceeds will go to California food banks. Donate here. Share a pic, tag it #Walk4Streetsblog or #Bike4Streetsblog.
