Coca-Cola to donate $250,000 to SF Parks Trust
SAN FRANCISCO -- Soda and fitness -- arguably on extreme ends of the health spectrum -- will meet in the middle in San Francisco's Outer Richmond neighborhood today, when the city accepts a $250,000 gift from Coca Cola.
The donation to San Francisco Parks Trust will mean a new trail in Golden Gate Park, along with other amenities in the park's northeast corner.
City and state leaders will meet at the Rochambeau Clubhouse at 238 25th Ave. to accept the gift from the beverage giant. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Mayor Ed Lee and San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department General Manager Phil Ginsburg are expected to attend the check presentation.
A Coca Cola representative is expected to speak about the company's Live Positively and Active Healthy Living programs, which are part of the company's commitment to parks and outdoor recreation.
The presentation is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
