Cruise the Ave so They Shall Walk, Sunday, October 2, Aurora Square / Sears Plaza

From MySears community website

What do Blink® electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, a car show, an automotive swap meet, a trade and crafts fair and They Shall Walk all have in common? They will all be outside of our Sears store in Shoreline, WA on Sunday, October 2 for a special event!

The Cruise the Ave so They Shall Walk event (free admission; $20 donation for car registration; hours: 9:30am – 4:00 pm) will include classic cars cruising on Aurora Avenue, starting at Shoreline Community College and ending at the Sears parking lot in Shoreline, WA (15711 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline, WA), where there will be a variety of booths set up for the trade and crafts fair. This event supports the nonprofit organization, They Shall Walk, which is a medical research organization founded to raise awareness of the plight of disabled persons and develop technology to improve their quality of life. Prizes for best car in classifications ranging from alternative fuel car to fan favorite will be awarded at the end of the event.

While you’re checking out the booths, be sure to stop by and see Sears’ newly-installed Blink® EV charging stations at the Northeast corner of the event. In June, ECOtality and Sears Holdings announced a pilot program to install Blink® level 2 EV charging stations at 10 Sears retail locations as part of The EV Project, and the Shoreline Sears store is one of those 10! The EV Project will provide an EV infrastructure to support the deployment of EVs in various markets across the country. More Blink® EV charging stations will soon be available at additional Sears stores in Washington and other states, so stay tuned!
