Senator Gustavo Rivera (D,WF-Bronx) launched Walk With Your Senator at St. James Park (2530 Jerome Ave.) as part of the Bronx CAN Health Initiative. This weekly Walk With Your Senator will not only allow constituents another opportunity to discuss concerns in their community with their State Senator, but it will also encourage members of the community to come out an exercise.
The Walk With Your Senator is part of the Bronx CAN Health Initiative, which Senator Rivera launched in conjunction with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Bronx community organizations in June. The weekly Walk With Your Senator will be held every Tuesday for the month of August through mid-September. The month of August, the Bronx CAN Health Initiative is focused on promoting exercise and physical fitness. This is walk is also part of New York City's Department of Health WalkNYC events.
