Trash Mob took to the streets as a part of Walktober, a fun-filled month of getting outside and celebrating Portland’s walkability. On Friday morning, members from Go Lloyd and Solve met at Lloyd Center Mall and spent their lunch break walking a stretch of Multnomah Street with trash bags and grabbers. Everyone was in high spirits despite the impending rain and enjoyed sharing some of their oddest finds, including an abundance of cough medicine and overwhelming amount of cigarette butts. 

Oregon Walks is collecting stories about walking from around the state. These stories will be be printed and distributed this fall as a Walking Anthology.

We want to hear from you about what walking means to you. Here are some prompts to get you started:

- How a walk changed your perspective on life, a situation or the world around you

- A memory triggered from walking yourself or your kids to school

- Why walking matters to you / your neighborhood / your family / your town.
