The purpose of this event is to encourage active transportation use and highlight businesses, art and culture!
Participants must use active transportation to explore the their neighborhood. Because active transportation allows people to move slowly and parking is not a factor in their access, these people are generally more positive, and they are able to experience, and see more of what your area has to offer!
Products, gift certificates and services purchased from businesses in your area will be awarded as prizes to the scavenger hunt winners. We expect about 500 people to participate, visiting your business district regularly during the 3-week long event and discovering what makes Southeastern San Diego so special. REGISTER your business HERE!
Cities are safer when more people go with active transportation. This event encourages people reduce their local carbon footprint and live a more healthy life style.
