Subway and state parks buy lunch for park goers
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission is partnering with Subway restaurants for the second year in a row to promote Washington's great outdoors.
This year, the State Parks and Subway restaurants partnership, Walk in the Park, kicked off on June 14 (National Get Outdoors Day) and runs through Sept. 30.
Walk in the Park will reward park visitors by honoring their Discover Pass in all 435 Subway restaurants located in 17 counties throughout Western Washington.
Anyone who visits participating Subway restaurants, and shows their Discover Pass now until Sept. 30 will receive a voucher for a free regular six-inch sandwich with the purchase of a regular six-inch sandwich of equal or greater value and a 30 ounce drink.
Subway vouchers also are available at state parks in the participating counties when staff are available.
Subway restaurants will also distribute the Washington State Parks brochure, Adventure Awaits, at all locations throughout the region.
“Encouraging families to lead healthier, active lifestyles is very important to us,” said Paul Armour, Subway advertising board chairman. “Getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors together is a great way to do that, and that’s why we decided to launch the Walk in the Park program.”
Subway restaurants in the following counties are participating in the Walk in the Park program: King, Snohomish, Chelan, Clallam, Douglas, Grays Harbor, Island, Jefferson, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Thurston and Whatcom.
“We are excited to be working with Subway restaurants once again to promote the Washington State Discover Pass, and the healthy recreation people can enjoy in state parks and recreation lands,” said Don Hoch, director of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.
