  • walking three times around the path at Alta Loma Park is equal to one mile?

The Parks and Recreation Department received grant funding from Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Programs in support of the Get Moving South San Francisco! campaign. 

Get Moving South San Francisco! is an exciting new program to encourage South San Francisco residents to engage in health and wellness activities by providing scholarships to register for classes, programs, and designated services offered through the Parks and Recreation Department.  Additionally, recipients will receive a free gift and gift certificate for a farmer’s market, grocery store, or special luncheons for seniors.

There are no age requirements for who can apply for the scholarship.  Applications will be available to all South San Francisco residents who meet the income qualifications or who provide a “prescription” for increased physical activity.  This program is open to new, current, and past enrollees of recreation programs and activities.    

Scholarships will be limited up to $50 per person, per quarter.  Scholarship funds may be limited to up to two times per person, per year depending on availability.  Applicants must pay the difference if the program or activity cost is greater than the scholarship award.  Scholarship awards cannot be combined into one quarter.   The number of scholarships granted per quarter are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.  The scholarship only applies to eligible programs that encourage physical fitness.  

Download an application or pick one up at the Parks and Recreation Department located at 33 Arroyo Drive in South San Francisco.  Completed applications must be submitted in person and include proof of residency, proof of income qualification, or a “prescription” from a medical provider for increased physical activity. 

Scholarships must be used by August 31, 2020.  No extensions or refunds will be granted.  Scholarships cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or applied towards other services.  Participants will be required to complete surveys about the scholarship program.
