Fourth Annual Stride for Seniors Charity Walk
(April 6,2021 – Portland Ore.). Stride for Seniors Charity Walk, presented by The Standard, will return for the fourth year on Saturday, April 24, at multiple locations throughout the greater Portland-Vancouver metro area. The reimagined event will allow participants to walk a variety of adventure trails while maintaining social distancing. This noncompetitive walk will raise both awareness and funds for Meals on Wheels People.
The walk will kick off at 9 a.m. when participants pick up their walker shirts, a walker kit with all the instructions they’ll need for the day, maps of adventure trails, as well as any prizes or incentives won at one of four walker drive-throughs:
· Ambleside Dining Center, 600 NE 8th Street, Gresham OR 97030
· Beaverton Dining Center, 5550 SW Hall Blvd., Beaverton OR 97005
· MLK Dining Center, 5325 NE MLK Blvd., Portland OR 97211
· The Diner Vancouver, 5303 E Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver WA 98661
Drive-through locations will be open between 9 and 11 a.m.
Thanks to donations from area Cinnabon stores, we’ll have some tasty treats to start off your adventure!
The Walk. We’ve put together two dozen adventure walking trail options, accessible through the All Trails app (downloadable on phone, tablet or computer) and printed maps will be available at each of the drive-through kiosks. Trails range from half-mile strolls to six-mile hikes. Trails are set up for socially-distant walking so participants can stroll safely. We’ll have a fun surprise at the start of each trail and the opportunity to take photos. Walks can take place at any time on April 24.
Our closing program, featuring the hostess with the mostess Poison Waters along with Emily Burris from KOIN’s AM Extra, will be live-streamed at 3 p.m. from our Central Office. Viewers will be treated to a special performance by our Precision Ladle Drill Team and we’ll provide a recap of our fundraising efforts, announce trophy winners and share photos of individuals and teams from the adventure trails. Details for accessing the closing program will be provided in walker kits and posted on social media.
