Reason #7 Not to Come to TBTN – I Can’t Walk the Entire March

Standard

Take Back the Night is coming up on Thursday, September 17th. We’re taking some time before the event to look at some of the reasons folks might not want to come to TBTN.

Reason #7 – I can’t walk the entire hour-long march

We understand that not everyone is able to walk for an hour long.

Recognizing that some participants use canes, walkers, wheelchairs or scooters or just struggle with walking, we try to have the march happen at a slower pace.

Halfway through the march, at Summer’s Lane, there is a shortcut back to City Hall for folks who would like to only walk in half the march.

If you’d like to participate in the march AND ride in style, a city bus will be following the march and is available for folks!
