Run, walk or stroll at People for Parks' Race for the Bandshell

When life gets complicated, there’s no better way to escape than to shed the iPhone and spend some time relaxing outdoors. Not everyone has the time to drive off to some secluded cabin in the middle of no-man’s land to do this, though. Local parks are a great alternative. These parks can’t survive on their own, however, and they do not remain kept up by some sort of miracle. They take time and, like everything else, money. Enter People for Parks, a grass-roots organization that has been helping improve parks throughout the Twin Cities since 1977.
Since its inception, the group has raised nearly $2 million and donated thousands of volunteer hours.
