The 2nd year anniversary of the Tucson Tragedy of 1/8/11 is coming up, and here’s info from the Beyond Tucson website, with a list of their upcoming events on that day:
We committed to be better.
To be better together.
To spend more time with those we love,
and to reach out to those we don’t yet know.
To get outdoors and enjoy nature’s beauty, and to fully embrace all that life has to offer.
To push ourselves beyond our normal boundaries,
and to strive for that next peak on the horizon.
Last year, on the first Saturday of the year – the anniversary of January 8, 2011, we commemorated those we lost, celebrated the spirit of togetherness and committed ourselves to building a stronger, healthier future.
Now, as this community-wide outdoor festival enters its second year, we continue this journey and move beyond towards a fresh set of challenges and new adventures.
Mark your calendars and start the year off right!
Join us on Saturday, January 5, 2013 for a full day of fun, fitness and family. Outdoor activities are planned for every age group and fitness level at multiple venues throughout Southern Arizona.
Dedicate yourself to a healthy living and to strengthening the well – being of your community.
See you on the first Saturday of the New Year – at Beyond.
The Main event “Together We Move” is at Armory Park, 220 S. 6th Avenue (south of Broadway), 12 noon to 4 p.m. Read more aboaut that family-friendly, athletic event online at their website. Tentative schedule:
At 12pm- Livable Streets Alliance and El Grupo Youth Cycling will host a family-friendly bicycle ride around downtown neighborhoods.
At 1 pm – Uzo Dance Methods and partners will be teaching Beyonce’s Move Your Body Flash Dance routine from the main stage.
At 2 pm – You can take a historical tour led by historian Ken Scoville and walk around and learn about downtown Tucson.
At 3pm – Meet Me Concepts will host a special Saturday edition of their Meet Me at Maynards Walk/Run around its usual route, but with a new twist – start/end from Armory Park.
Now that shooter Jared Lee Loughner has been sentenced to several life terms (with no parole), let us move “beyond” that horrible event to commemorating that day in a positive, healthy way. Congratulations to Beyond Tucson for their continued commitment.
Commemorate. Celebrate. Commit.
