What are the Weston Awards?

Oregon Walks' annual Weston Awards pay tribute to the feat and feet of walking. 

For twenty-six years, Oregon Walks has been instrumental in working toward creating communities where walking is truly safe, convenient, and attractive for everyone. 


But we couldn't do it without the shoe leather that passionate people just like you tread in the quest for a healthier, more livable future.

The Weston Awards celebrate inspiration, enthusiasm, perseverance, and the conviction that getting around on foot should be safe and accessible for everyone.

Join us for a special evening celebrating our shared work advocating for walkable communities and the Westons among us today: people from all walks of life who have made our communities more livable and more walkable.

Who Is this Weston Character?

Oregon Walks' Weston Awards are named in honor of America's greatest walker, Edward P. Weston. In just 10 days in 1861, Weston walked from Boston to DC to attend Lincoln's Inaugural Ball. His journey took him to cities big and small, neighborhoods poor and rich, through a cross section of America, where he was welcomed at every turn.
