This fall, Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. is working to bring healthy into downtown! Anchorage has countless bike paths, hiking and running trails, and parks, right out the door. Did you know you can cross country ski to downtown from Kincaid State Park? Or that you can bike on paved paths all the way from the hillside to downtown? Not to mention, just on the doorstep of Downtown, you can find Elderberry Park and Delaney Park Strip with soccer fields, beach volleyball and tennis courts, horseshoes, a hockey ice rink and more! The Downtown Partnership will be working this fall to highlight some of the healthy opportunities that already exist here, and hopefully uncovering new and exciting ideas for both residents and visitors alike.
About Rosie: Anchorage Downtown Partnership’s own Olympic Hopeful
Part of our mission to bring healthy into downtown comes from a new member of our team: Rosie Frankowski. Rosie ran 144 Activities in Town Square Park, working with Anchorage Parks & Recreation to activate the park space with recreational activities. She also cross country ski races for APU Nordic Ski Center and is a 2018 Olympic hopeful, training to qualify for PyeongChang. You can learn more about Rosie here.
One aspect of qualifying for the Olympics is having the right support behind you. The cost of participating in Olympic Qualifying competitions November through January is expensive. Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. is partnering with Rosie this fall to raise funds through crowdfunding, on Rallyme, to help cover her early season costs.
