New season of weekend outdoor community walks begins April 1, 2017
Warmer temperatures signal the return of Team Pineda’s weekend 5k outdoor community walks. Beginning with the first weekend in April, Saturday, April 1 and Sunday April 2, 2017, West Chicago Mayor Ruben Pineda will lead the way for a Healthy West Chicago by organizing weekly walks through various neighborhoods.
Walks start at 9:00 a.m. sharp. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather, and bring a bottle of water to carry during the walk or to enjoy after the walk. The following are the locations for the first two walks. An interactive map of all Team Pineda routes may be found on the City’s website, www.westchicago.org on the mapping portal at the bottom of the homepage.
