Celebrate Walktober with Oregon Walks - Be a OW champion at walks all month long!

Walktober Volunteer Orientation:

next Tuesday, October 6th, 5:30 - 6:30,  

at our headquarters, 1805 NE 2nd Ave


It’s that time of year again, walkthusiasts! Oregon Walks is launching our fourth annual Walktober event series this week, on October 1st! This fun and fabulous month of walking culminates on the biggest walking holiday of all, Halloween. Come join in the fun!


This year, we are looking for outgoing walkers to help us spread the word about Oregon Walks and our work. Sign up to join (or lead!) a walk from the calendar and show up with a smile. We’ll give you some information about us and some swag to take with you. And don’t worry, we’ll train you first!


We’re holding a volunteer orientation next Tuesday evening  that will help give you a background on Oregon Walks and the work we do - including some particular training on outreach. If you’re interested, please e-mail volunteer coordinator, Inna at: and fill out an Oregon Walks volunteer app if you haven’t volunteered with us before.



We are so excited to welcome Inna Levin to Oregon Walks as our new Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator! She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience working with volunteers, organizing people around issues and examining transportation policy. We are lucky to have her on our team - feel free to stop by and say hi or drop her an email at:

(Pssst she'll be at our booth at Sunday Parkways this Sunday in the OMSI parking lot too!!)

We had Inna answer some questions so you all could get to know our newest team member:

It has been one year since I joined Oregon Walks as Executive Director – and it has been just as energizing and jam-packed as I hoped it would be. Working on pedestrian issues and supporting this wonderful organization’s growth is why I started this role last July, and I want to share with you some of our accomplishments over this past year and the exciting opportunities we have on the horizon.
