On Tuesday, March 9, residents can support Bellevue's popular Parks Wellness Walks events just by shopping at Bellevue Whole Foods Market. The store at 888 116th Ave. NE will donate 5 percent of the day's net sales for the walks, which highlight the best of city's art, parks and natural and historic sites.
The walks are sponsored by Bellevue Parks & Community Services, in partnership with the American Volkssport Association and Whole Foods Market Bellevue to encourage opportunities to explore some of the city's 94 miles of trails. 2010 Park Walks include:
