UWalk Campus Tours & Walking Fair!

Before or after a campus walking tour, all UWalk groups and members are invited to visit the Walking Fair in Red Square to learn about walking resources from Feet First and Commuter Services. Be sure to check out other transportation options from Zipcar and Seattle Pedicab; grab a sample from Honest Tea, Popchips, and Peaks Frozen Custard; and stop by the Aveda booth to let their experts show you how to look and feel your best!
