To kick off this initiative, we want to get our community moving – literally! And one of the easiest ways to do that is to increase the number of steps we take each day."Step Out St. Clair" officially starts on Saturday, June 5 and continues until Saturday, August 7 (although we hope you’ll make this a life-long habit!). The event starts with Walker Awareness Day on June 5, where we remind drivers that Upper St. Clair has a lot of people enjoying the great outdoors, so stay off the cell phone, stay focused on your surroundings, and watch for pedestrians as you travel through the township this summer!To be part of "Step Out St. Clair", visit the Community Foundation website at cfusc.org.
