Join Us at National City “Senior Saturday” on April 9th
Last weekend on March 26th, Circulate and the City of National City’s Community Services Department co-hosted the fourth of eight Senior Saturday events in Kimball Park! Seniors from across the region gathered together to exercise, listen to music, and interact with informational booths.
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our partner organizations for this event, which included the County of San Diego, Southern Caregiver Resource Center, Meals on Wheels, the San Diego LGBT Community Center, and Molina Healthcare.
Join us at the same spot next weekend on April 9th from 10am-1pm to participate in intergenerational conversations and crafts, learn about healthy cooking tips, and access resources for Alzheimer’s, transit, COVID-19, repair services, and more! These events are a free opportunity for senior residents to come together for a wide variety of activities geared towards their interests and abilities. No two Senior Saturday events will be the same.
Corporate Member Spotlight: Link by Superpedestrian
In February, e-scooter company Superpedestrian announced their Pedestrian Defense safety system. The feature allows the company’s e-scooters to detect and correct in real-time unsafe riding behaviors, like riding on sidewalks or the wrong way down a one-way street. Superpedestrian aims to build and roll out new scooters equipped with Pedestrian Defense to 25 cities across the United States and Europe this year, with the initial deployments beginning in the U.S. and the United Kingdom in pedestrian-dense cities by early spring, according to the company.
Thank you, Superpedestrian, for your continued support of Circulate San Diego. Together we are making San Diego a better place to live, work, and move around.
Mobility, Health + Wellness Fair Event Recap
Saturday, March 19th, the Circulate team was at Malcolm X Library in Southeast San Diego hosting a Mobility, Health, + Wellness Fair. Residents left vaccinated, with free bikes, helmets, bike bells and lights, a better understanding of watershed health, and even participated in a dance class led by the Wheelchair Dancers! The event was fun day in the sun and most importantly connected residents to resources they have available in their community.
