Steptember is a month of walking fun - a way to encourage people throughout the region find new places to walk and people to enjoy walking with. Steptember is the iteration of Walktober (see below), which was developed by Oregon Walks in 2011 as the “Pedalpalooza for walking.” 

Healthy Travel Options to School

We are partnering with Portland Public Schools to lead 15 Community Walks to identify barriers to walking in Title I schools within the district. The Community Walks will correspond with Community Open Houses by high school cluster that Safe Routes to Schools will co-host with Portland Public Schools. More information on the Community Open Houses will follow in early June with marketing to occur throughout the summer.

Oregon Walkways

Oregon Walkways are open streets events designed for those that walk & roll. The purpose of Oregon Walkways is to develop a community led model for open-streets events across the state that are accessible (for people of all ages and abilities), and walking-focused. Learn more about our upcoming Oregon Walkways event, or about how to host your own Oregon Walkways event.
