Oregon Walks 25th Anniversary Celebration & Membership Drive

Active transportation advocacy requires a lot of hard work, and bringing further attention to the need for safer, healthier transportation options for all Oregonians is critical. We’re committed to continuing to elevate pedestrian issues, and build relationships with a wide range of partners to reach our goal of safe and accessible streets for everyone.

Last Thursday, April 21, Oregon Walks hosted a packed house of members, treating them to ping-pong, ice cream, and fun – all in the name of member appreciation! As many of you know, this year marks the 25th anniversary of Oregon Walks and thus the event served as an opportunity to both celebrate and acknowledge the fundamental support members have offered throughout the years.


The event was made possible by one of Oregon Walks’ own board members, Steve Bozzone, being the lucky winner of the Willamette Week’s 2015 Give Guide prize of a Salt n Straw ice cream party at Pips and Bounce, Portland’s newest “ping-pong paradise.” The space could not have been more appropriate. Oozing energy and enthusiasm, the quirky event space perfectly matched the attitude that is so characteristic of Oregon Walks members, volunteers, and staff.
