Every youth in Friends of the Children-Portland program receives a paid, professional mentor from kindergarten to high school graduation- 12.5 years, no matter what. This summer, the FriendsPDX community will be honoring the 12.5 year commitment at Steps for Change, our first ever Virtual Walk/Run fundraising event. We hope Steps for Change will inspire you to get up and get active while giving back!
On Saturday, July 17, participants will set their own course and track their activity to reach 12.5 KM. Whether its walking, running, biking, or skipping, we want our community to get off the screen and get on the streets! Prizes will be awarded for creative participation, fasted times, and XXX. Participants will also enjoy commemorative event t-shirt, curated event playlist, and suggested routes for the big day. Funds raised from this even will help us provide a Friend to more children in the Portland metropolitan area.
