Alderman José G. Pérez will be joined by Mayor Tom Barrett for a walk down Historic Mitchell Street in the 12th Aldermanic District on Friday, August 8, as part of the “Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days” initiative launched by the Mayor earlier this summer.

The 1-mile walk will begin at 12:15 p.m. Friday and should take about 30 minutes. All residents and businesses are invited to take part, and walkers will gather in front of the starting point — St. Stanislaus Church, 524 W. Historic Mitchell St. During the event, walkers will venture west on Historic Mitchell Street to S. 13th St., and then turn around and return to St. Stanislaus.

“Making walking or exercise a part of your daily routine is important. I invite neighbors to join Mayor Barrett and me for this noon hour walk on Historic Mitchell Street,” Alderman Pérez said.

“Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days” is a city-wide effort to engage Milwaukee residents and families to lead a more active lifestyle and implement physical activity into daily routines.

Please visit for more details on the program, to see about registering and to track your progress. A list of scheduled walks can also be found on the website.
