The “Market Street Mile” Is Back For Its Second Year

The clouds are finally clearing and the weather is warming up, which means it is time once again time for the Market Street Mile. The walk is from the Chamber offices, down Market Street, across the bridge and back, which equals exactly one mile! It’s a great way to incorporate some fresh air and physical activity into your work day. The Chamber transforms one of its offices into MSM Headquarters – walkers can store their belongings while they walk and also help themselves to a pick-me-up snack, water, and any other necessities they may need from sunscreen to umbrellas. There will also be a sign-in sheet where you log your walks and enter for a chance to win some great prizes.

There’s no need to register and there’s no cost. Just walk any time during the Chamber’s regular business hours of Monday through Thursday, 9 to 4 and Friday, 9 to 1. The event will kick-off Monday, April 30th, and extend through October, giving everyone plenty of time to experience the downtown area and walk their way to a healthier lifestyle in 2018. Interested in sponsoring the Market Street Mile? There are still a few openings. Contact Tricia Maple at tmaple@jeffersoncountychamber.com.
