Walk/Bike City & Campus Celebration

USC Student Health Services, Sustainable Carolina, University Facilities and the City of Columbia will host a Walk/Bike City & Campus Celebration on Monday, April 17, to promote physically active and sustainable transportation.

The celebration will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a walk/bike route starting on Greene Street in front of Preston Hall headed westbound on Greene Street to the newly opened Foundation Square. USC President Harris Pastides, First Lady Patricia Moore-Pastides, Mayor Steve Benjamin and Richland County Director of Transportation, Rob Perry will provide remarks to commemorate the campus and City's commitment to wellness and sustainability. Raffle prizes, live music and healthy refreshments will be provided in Foundation Square. Bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes or your own bicycle and helmet and get ready to celebrate this movement to alternative active transportation! All students, faculty, staff and members of the Columbia community are welcome to attend this event in support of the vision of a Healthy Carolina community!
