The last day of Meet Me Downtown Phoenix (MMDTPHX) will be on Monday, February 26. Over the past three years this event has built a community through fitness, with total attendance of more than 23,000 (4700 registered participants of all ages.) It provided people a weekly social walk/run that engaged individuals and businesses in a vibrant event that showcased downtown Phoenix as a prime location for fitness activities. This could not have been possible without the title sponsorship of our proud partner, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona. The City of Phoenix and FitPHX would like to sincerely thank BCBSAZ for their title sponsorship for this event over the last three years. In addition, City of Phoenix and FitPHX would like to acknowledge other supporting partners who helped make this event possible each week; Meet Me Concepts, Downtown Phoenix Inc., Sole Sports Running Zone, The Park Street Food and Bar, Phoenix Parks Foundation, BBVA Compass Bank and all our participating “Meet Me” Restaurants. FitPHX, the citywide health and wellness initiative is committed to providing free, innovative recreation and fitness programming to help you accomplish your health and wellness goals.

To learn more about our many programs and opportunities,
I should have started this so much sooner. Everyone was so helpful, which was great because I was clueless as to what I needed to do. It was made easy with the Downtown Ambassadors…signs on the route, and short of it being really hot, it was a great way to see so much more of Phoenix. Everyone was super friendly and welcoming at the end too when handing out prizes. This is a great way to see downtown, meet new people and get your exercise. LOVE IT!
