SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 2, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — San Francisco Personal Injury Attorneys, Rahman Law PC, are pleased to announce their repeat sponsorship of Walk San Francisco’s annual Walk to Work Day. The event will take place Wednesday, April 10, 2019 between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Last year’s event was the biggest ever and participation is expected to increase again this year. San Francisco was the first city in the nation to officially celebrate Walk to Work Day in 2013 and Rahman Law PC has participated in or sponsored the event for the past 6 years.
Walk to Work Day was introduced by Prevention Magazine in 2004 to encourage walking as an everyday part of a healthy lifestyle. San Francisco made Walk to Work Day official to further this mission by raising pedestrian safety awareness to make walking better in San Francisco every day. Walk San Francisco, a non-profit dedicated to making the streets of San Francisco a more livable, walkable shared public space, supports Walk to Work Day with Hubs where volunteers give out freebies, coffee, and prizes for commuters who participate.
As with last year, Walk to Work Day 2019 will include a rally at City Hall at 9 a.m. to give pedestrians an opportunity to ask City leaders to make the streets safer for everyone.
Shaana Rahman, the principal and founder of Rahman Law PC, is a personal injury attorney in San Francisco and Paso Robles. Ms. Rahman serves on the Board of Directors of Walk San Francisco and believes in advocating to keep San Francisco safe for everyone. As a personal injury attorney in San Francisco, she has seen firsthand how dangerous the high-injury corridors can be to pedestrians. These corridors are the 6 percent of streets in San Francisco where 60 percent of pedestrian injuries and fatalities from collisions occur. Last year, there were 15 pedestrian fatalities in San Francisco, which is fewer than in 2013, the year Walk to Work Day became official in San Francisco, but still too many.
In addition to sponsoring Walk to Work Day in San Francisco, Ms. Rahman and some of the Rahman Law PC staff will be volunteering at a Work Day Hub. Work Day Hub locations can be found on the Walk San Francisco website (walksf.org). To meet Ms. Rahman and the other personal injury attorneys of Rahman Law PC, follow the Rahman Law PC Facebook page (facebook.com/rahmanLawSF) to find out which Hub they will be at and receive updates on making San Francisco a safer place for pedestrians.
