Planning for our first event began in April of 2013, and we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. It was an incredible amount of work. And none of it would have happened without my co-conspirators Anne Sesler and Margy Waller, and the generous support of the Haile Foundation and Interact for Health.
Our first event took place in the Walnut Hills/East Walnut Hills neighborhoods, along McMillan Street from Gilbert Avenue to Woodburn Avenue, and along Woodburn Avenue from McMillan Street to Madison Road (1 mile total). We had 25 activities along the route: gigantic chalk for drawing in the street, salsa dancing, belly dancing, double dutch jump roping, hula hoops, yoga, mural painting, corn hole, giant jenga, a scavenger hunt, and much more.
Our next event will take place in Northside on August 24th. Be there.
