Got endorphins? Join TMC at the Julian Wash Greenway celebration Nov. 1

You’re invited to celebrate the completion of the 14-mile Julian Wash Greenway segment of The Loop on Saturday, Nov. 1.

Hundreds of individuals and families are expected to ride, run and walk along the new route and get free water bottles, backpacks, kids’ bike helmets and bike bells. There’s no better way to celebrate the beautiful fall weather than to head up The Loop shared-use path system.Cycle loop logo

The final 2.7-mile segment of the greenway was funded by the Community Healthcare Benefit Foundation of Pima County, supported by Tucson Medical Center and Carondelet Health Network.

There will be a bike valet, refreshments, a bike rodeo and other activities at the Y. Bike jerseys will be for sale. See and order the new Loop T-shirt.

And if you have leftover Halloween candy, kids are invited to swap it for a fun outing at the zoo! The first 100 participants will receive one free adult and one free children’s admission ticket.

Speakers at a dedication ceremony at 10 a.m. at the Mulcahy YMCA at Kino Sports Complex on East Ajo Way include Pima County Supervisor Ramón Valadez, District 2; Administrator Chuck Huckelberry; Health Department Director Dr. Francisco Garcia; Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Chris Nanos; Tucson Medical Center Vice President Michael Duran and Carondelet Health Network Vice President Donna Zazworsky.
