Healthy Downey: Walk With The Mayor

Wednesday Feb. 6th, 6:00pm – Columbia Memorial Space Center. 12400 Columbia Way. Downey Ca.

Come out and take a healthy walk with fellow residents and the Mayor! As part of Mayor Guerra’s Healthy Downey initiative, “Walk With The Mayor” is a bi-monthly event to encourage Downey residents, young and old to join him in a walk & talk at various Downey locations. Have something on your mind that you would like to talk to the Mayor about? Guerra is all ears and open to discuss anything you would like. The last walk had about 40 residents joining in, which almost doubled the previous walk. The Mayor handed out Healthy Downey t-shirts and other items. It is a great way to make new friends and take a few steps to a healthier lifestyle. Please see the full schedule below.
