WalkBoston's Annual Celebration 2021

Each March, WalkBoston holds their Annual Celebration to honor achievements in walkability and to highlight the contributions of volunteers, board members, and the many individuals and corporations who support them each year.

Their Golden Shoes Awards recognize individuals, agencies, municipalities and companies exemplifying the ideals of WalkBoston’s mission. 

Congratulations to the 2021 Golden Shoes!
