Ten Toe registrations are going strong and the kick-off walk has reached capacity. On April 2, the group will be walking to the 6 North Apartment Building to learn about Universal Design. This walk was developed in partnership with AARP St. Louis and due to space limitations, can only handle 25 people. Interested walkers can still register for the additional 2 regional walks scheduled this spring. The Botanical Garden walk has a few spaces left and the Loosest Slots walk has no capacity limit. The details for both walks are below. We hope you will consider joining us.
“We are excited to see the response to our kick-off walk in 2015 for the CMT Ten Toe Express. It is amazing after eight years to continue to see the interest and excitement in this program and the overall benefits it provides to the St. Louis region,” said Kim Cella, CMT Executive Director.
