This summer things are going to be a little different around Buffalo. That’s because GO Bike Buffalo is planning on temporarily closing down a few city streets in order to turn them into all-ages playgrounds (learn more). In order to do that, GO Bike Buffalo is looking for additional instructors who are willing and able to help create and monitor healthy activities, so that people can see that there are plenty of ways to enjoy city-living that don’t revolve around the almighty car.
If you are an advocate for an activity that you would like to see brought to life this summer (in the middle of a street), then by all means why not sign up to be a part of the Play Streets movement? Are you a master Hula hooper? Or a skateboard pro? Maybe you’re a superb chalk drawer. GO Bike Buffalo is looking for motivated instructors, performers, athletes, etc. to consider coming out and teaching people the fun benefits of staying healthy. From GO Bike Buffalo:
If you are interested in leading an activity at Buffalo Play Streets please go to GO Bike Buffalo’s website, read the Request For Proposal document and submit a Program Proposal. We need volunteers as well, so if you’re not a professional instructor or aren’t able to host an activity but would still like to participate, email the Play Streets Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Play Streets is made possible as a result of grant funding from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and Partnership for a Healthier America. BlueCross BlueShield of WNY is the local lead for all five Play Streets.
