Have Fun at the Finish Line
Live music, food trucks, games and more will be on hand Thursday, May 4, when the finish line of Great Race 2017: Transit in Action becomes a destination. Four teams of media celebrities and community leaders will race via public transit, bicycles and car sharing to the historic Wabash Station on Delmar, where a pop-up event will take place from 4 to 6:30 p.m.
The event is organized by Citizens for Modern Transit and AARP in St. Louis. AARP supports transportation alternatives, outdoor spaces and social participation as key components of livable communities. The celebration at the end of the race is free and open to the public.
“St. Louis is such a great city, and AARP is committed to making the community more inviting and accessible for people of all ages,” said Sheila Holm, community outreach director for AARP in St. Louis. “We’re looking forward to connecting with folks and having some fun at the finish line.”
The goal of the celebration, she said, is to show residents the possibilities of using an established urban hub as an event space. AARP will have an information table at the event, where people can talk with staff and volunteers to learn more about what AARP is doing in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
