From Market and Van Ness Bank of America branch (near Civic Center BART) to the SF Fire Credit Union.
|Event Type||Party/Street Party|
To promote the up-coming Bank Transfer Day on November 5th, we are hosting a leisurely "run" on the banks - really a run *from* the big banks to a local credit union. Come be part of the fun!
We will gather outside the Market and Van Ness Bank of America branch (near Civic Center BART) at 11am, and after a suitable interval will "run" (Bay to Breakers-style - just an easy-going walk) up Van Ness, past several big banks to California Street, hang a left and head towards the SF Fire Credit Union, passing more big banks on the way.
Please come in costume - either as a runner, or a banker, or whatever you are for Halloween! Bring creative, funny signs!
If you can join us on a bicycle carrying music, that would be great! Please leave a note down below or contact the creator (Martin MacKerel). The more music the merrier!
Also contact me if you plan on closing or opening an account that day (in costume, of course). We'd like to get the timing right and also make sure the credit union is prepared. Mostly we're focused on having fun, dissing the banks, and spreading the word.
Info on Bank Transfer Day:
PS To those who have asked: we will end up at the credit union about 2pm, which gives you time to join the main Occupy SF "Protest in Suit Day" march if you wish.
