Who: CONNECT! the Boardwalks
What: 4th Annual Community Walk
When: Saturday, June 17, 2017
0830 am to register; Walk starts at 0900 am
Please do register so that we have an accurate head count. You'll want your button pin in order to get in on the food at the end.
Where: Coos Bay Boardwalk
Anderson Avenue x Highway 101
Why: Walk for fun and to learn about the access and connectivity issues involved in completing the Coos Waterfront Walkway. Hear the latest about the progress of the project.
Show the Cities of Coos Bay and North Bend, and the Coquille Indian Tribe that connecting the boardwalks is an important community-desired economic development project, and that access to a beautiful walkable working waterfront and healthy active living is something that we will all benefit from.
This is a family friendly event. Joggers, bicyclists, and users of non-motorized transportation are welcome and can make your own way along the route.
Walkers can choose either a guided 1 mile or 5 mile route. Free shuttle service at the end of the 5-mile walk will be provided. Both groups will enjoy living history moments along Front Street, always a crowd favorite, and meet at the Coos History Museum for a rest stop, ice cream, and one of two raffle drawings.
New this year: Walkers going for just your steps and no-frills, can join Michelle Davis for an Athletic Walk.
5-mile walk participants will be escorted across Highway 101 by officers of the Coos Bay Police Department, and continue to The Mill Casino Hotel Boardwalk for another break, and an opportunity to view the tribal exhibits at the hotel lobby, cookies and water, a tour of the RV Park, and an escorted exit through the K2Wharf. After a group photo at the North Bend Boardwalk "long walkers" will return to the Coos Bay Boardwalk via shuttle.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!! Participants who register will receive a logo button pin. The logo button pin is your admission to a FREE LUNCH at the Coos Bay Boardwalk at 1:30 PM, after the walk. A 2nd raffle drawing will take place at approximately 1:45 PM.
Raffle tickets and T-shirts are available at the CONNECT! the Boardwalks Info Table at the Coos Bay Farmers' Market on Wednesdays, Coos Bay Wine Walks and on Walk day. This year we are offering raffle prizes totaling $2200.
