Sunday Streets HTX- Oct. 12

After a successful run this summer, the Sunday Streets HTX program is back to help Houstonians get outdoors and get moving.

What began as a three-month pilot initiative back in April as part of Mayor Annise Parker's Go Healthy Houston program is starting up again next month. The program, which opens up city streets to pedestrians and cyclists on the first Sunday of each month, is intended to promote a healthy lifestyle among Houstonians.

We need volunteers on Sunday, Oct. 12, for our 2nd shift 1:45 pm- 4:45 pm. A route through the Heights, from 19th Street to Shepherd, will be closed off to cars, allowing area residents to take over the road on foot or bicycle. If you are able to help out, please take a moment and put yourself on the schedule.

The event will shift on Nov. 2 to an area of the Third Ward/Museum Park, from Dowling/Elgin to West Alabama to Almeda/Arbor. And on Dec. 7, an area in the East End/Fifth Ward (from Navigation/Jenson to York Clinton) will be close to vehicular traffic for the Sunday Streets festivities. More details to follow on these 2 events.

You can register yourself to volunteer for this event by clicking the link below:
