Become a Founding Member of Denver’s Walkability Movement
Donate $100 or more to receive a WalkDenver t-shirt
As a start-up non-profit, WalkDenver has achieved great success in our first few years. With an army of volunteers, we organized two successful Better Block events that demonstrated complete streets concepts and catalyzed long-term improvements in the Jefferson Park and Five Points neighborhoods. A major grant from Kaiser Permanente allowed WalkDenver to hire our first full-time staff member to support our policy and program work. We have gathered more than 1,000 signatures and more than 40 support letters for our petition, calling on the City and County of Denver to establish a Pedestrian Advisory Committee and develop a Denver Moves Pedestrians implementation plan.
We are thrilled to report that last month Denver Mayor Michael Hancock gave the green light to form the Advisory Committee, and the Mayor’s 2015 City Budget proposal released earlier this week includes funding for a pedestrian plan.
Now we need YOUR help to keep the movement going! Donate today to increase WalkDenver’s reach in the community, improve our pedestrian advocacy effectiveness, and support new programs and efforts to increase walkability in Denver. As part of our newly launched membership program, donors who give $100 or more will receive a WalkDenver t-shirt.

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.
Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
