Steptember 2019 is almost here!

 

It's almost here! STEPtember is right around the corner and our walk calendar is wide open. So come lead a walk with us. 

Building off last year's success that had 41 walks and saw nearly 1100 people walking for fun, health, education and community building we are excited to announce that 2019's STEPtember walk calendar is open and walk's can be posted. 

What is STEPtember?

Oregon Walks conceived Walktober (Steptember’s predecessor) to promote walking as a fun, healthy, ubiquitous activity in the Portland metro region. This is an open calendar, which means that anyone can create, post, and lead a walk. Walks are put on by people like you!

Walktober was developed as the “Pedalpalooza for walking,” and Steptember is the next iteration of that excellent idea. (Thanks to Shift for creating such a great idea!)

How do I lead a walk?

Look anyone can lead a walk. Yes, this means you! There are 4 easy steps
