Around Town

Stride For Seniors! - Join us as we walk to ensure our homebound seniors receive the proper nutrition they need!

Our reimagined Stride for Seniors will allow individuals and teams to safely walk at a variety of locations throughout the Portland-Vancouver metro area. Here’s what you need to know:

The walk will kick off at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, 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!

Next is walking! We’ve put together two dozen adventure walking trail options and they are a snap to access. We’ll provide you with a link to our routes on the All Trails app (downloadable on your phone, tablet or computer) and we’ll have printed maps available at each of our drive-through kiosks. There are six options easily accessible from each of our drive-through locations and they range from half-mile strolls to six-mile hikes. Choose the trail that best fits your ability, or combine several smaller trails for an all-day adventure! Trails are set up for socially-distant walking so you can safely stroll with your team. We’ll have a fun surprise at the start of each trail and the opportunity to take photos. The timing of your walk is completely up to you.

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. You’ll 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 your walker kit and posted on social media.
